School Board to choose Lake

Asbury elementary site


By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff
disralinesse)r@jcpgro/up.rom

GREEN COVE SPRINGS - School dis-
trict staff will recommend pursuit of an-
other elementary site for Lake Asbury at
the board meeting, Thursday, Feb. 16 at
the Teacher's In-Service Center at Flem-
ing Island High School.
The area for the elementary site,
known as Elementary "X" during the
planning period, is located near County
Road 218.
The area was chosen based on a
number of criteria, including proxim-
ity of students, cost of property and ac-
cess to sites.
Another area, on Russell Road was
also considered but district officials de-
cided the site would not provide the same
access to the number of students project-
ed for the Lake Asbury area.
The Russell Road area is closer to
Rideout Elementary but would require
having students come across Black Creek
according to David Conner, Coordinator
of Planning and Intergovernmental Re-
lations for the district.
Authorization by the school board
would permitstaff to proceed to look at spe-
cific property sites, prepare an appraisal, a


property survey and an environmental
study estimated to cost $20,000.
Board members will hear an update
concerning school growth, county ap-
provals of subdivision and zoning activi-
ty, and the impacts of that growth on the
district's ability to provide sufficient stu-
dent stations.
The school board will also receive a re-
port from a task force on school security
convened to address vandalism and
break-in activity.
The task force included school district
staff and Lt. Ronnie Gann and Frances
Spillers, an office analyst with the Clay
County Sheriff's Office.
The board will consider recommen-
dations made by the task force.
The five recommendations consid-
ered to have the highest priority by the
task force are:
* Initiate an inventory of all keys and
key logs within the school system. A strict
key control protocol should be estab-
lished and a validation and reconciliation
of our status should be implemented.
Key security should be annually moni-
tored and evaluated.
* Security enhancement by providing

Confessions of a



do-it-yourselfer


bhede, rson @jrpgrioup.com(

During my long and eventful life-
time, there are, perhaps, no greater dis-
asters than those that occurred during
my forays into remodeling my home.
When I was about 14 years old, my
parents bought an old home. The house
was so old it had not even been built in
the United States; it was built in colonial
Massachusetts.
It was obvious that the original
house had been expanded. The addi-
tion, however, had been added to the
end of the original structure and done
so so skillfully that it was not apparent
from the outside. Inside it was a differ-
ent matter. There were stairs on each
end of the house and no communica-
tion at all between the two structures at
the second floor. That proved to be a bit
of a problem when my father wanted to
gut the first floor of the addition to
build my mother a huge country
kitchen; that stairway had to go and go
it did.
That created a second problem; the
second floor of the addition became
isolated from the rest of the house - at
any level.
To my father, who had completed an
apprenticeship in carpentry in his
youth, that wasn't much of a problem;
he simply cut a doorway through the
connecting wall.
Ahh, but that revealed problem
number three - right in the middle of
the "doorway" there was a four-by-four
vertical post. It stayed that way for
months - and months - and months.
That became a problem for me; I
had built a photographic darkroom in
the added end of the house and I got
tired of slithering sideways through the
door to get to my domain. Sooo, here's
the by-now-15-year-old problem solver.
One day when I was home alone, I went
into my workshop, got hold of the
largest hand saw I could find and
climbed the stairs to perform corrective
surgery. I sawed through the bottom of
the post. It was rough going and the saw
kept binding. That should have given
me a clue, but it didn't. I sawed through
the top of the post - more binding - and
when I got almost all the way through, I
kicked the post out of the way.
When my father got home, I
dragged him upstairs and proudly
showed him what I had done.
He gasped.
He-.blanched.
He grabbed the stair rail for support.
"Do you know what you have done?"
he cried. "That's a supporting timber
for the ridge pole - it's a wonder the
whole roof didn't cave in."
YEARS LATER: My wife and I were
refinishing some furniture. We had a
chest of drawers in the garage and Jean

had painted it an antique white. The
paint dried and really looked nice but I
thought I would give itjust a little extra
shine. I got out some fine sandpaper
and a pan of water and proceeded to
wet sand it. And sanded the paint right
off it.
Needless to say, Jean was not at all
happy about having to repaint it.
But the paint dried and this little old
cabinetmaker, me, got out the sandpa-
per and water...
The third time Jean painted the
chest I caught her eying an axe in the
corner, so art yielded to prudence and I
made no further attempt to improve on
her work.
STILL LATER: We had bought an
older house and were in the process of
remodeling and redecorating. One of
the first projects was to do something
about the main bathroom. Whoever
had wall papered it obviously had taste
only in their mouths. The best thing
that could be said about the room was it
was garish. We had picked out new
paper and I was going to tackle the job
over the weekend.
Late Friday afternoon my phone
rang and, when I picked it up,Jean said,
"ITon't want to talk to you!" She hung up.
Well, I thought, this is very strange.
The phone rang again andjean said,
"I don't want you to come home; you're
going to kill me when you see what I've
done."
"What did you do?" I asked.
"I don't want to tell you," she blurted
and hung up again.
By the time I got home, I was pre-
pared for the worst. I walked through
the door and Jean was standing in the
middle of the living room busily chew-
ing the nails off both hands.
"Look in the bathroom," was all she
would say.
Oh no, I thought, she started hang-
ing new paper over old and the whole
thing has peeled off onto the floor.
It was worse than that.
The old paper had already started
peeling away from the wall up near the
ceiling.Jean thought she would help
me by peeling the old paper off so she
had taken hold of the loose corner of
the paper and yanked.
The old paper came off alright - and
so did the plaster, right down to the lath.
Did I "kill" her? No, but I did almost
die laughing.

Lassiter says he's ready to decide Beltway path


By Bob Henderson, Staff
bhenderson@jcpgroup.com

GREEN COVE SPRINGS - The much-
debated Clay County Beltway was again
in the forefront before the Board of
County Commissioners (BCC) at its regu-
lar meeting Tuesday, Feb. 14.
Marge Hutton, North Area Business
Council chair, read into the record a
Chamber of Commerce resolution in
support of the southern, or pink, route


for the Beltway and a river crossing near
the present Shands Bridge.
In response, Commission Chairman
Glenn Lassiter noted that, in addition to
the Chamber, the BCC, the municipalities
of Green Cove Springs, Penney Farms
and Keystone Heights, as well the Coun-
ty's Transportation Advisory Committee
had adopted similar resolutions of sup-
port for the southern route. He asked
County Manager Fritz Behring to in-
chide copies of the resolutions in the


package that will be sent to the Florida
Department of Transportation.
Later the question of a joint meeting of
the commissions of Clay and St. Johns
Counties was addressed. Lassiter noted that
there was still disagreement as to who would
chair the meeting, one faction favoring the
Northeast Florida Regional Planning
Council (NEFRPC) and the other the Met-
ropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).
Commissioner Pat McGovern under-
scored the "turf battling" in St. Johns


County and suggested that the two agen-
cies co-chair the meeting. He noted that
the DOT wants resolutions from each
county and the MPO.
At the end of the discussion, Lassiter
noted, "If we don't have a date (for joint
meeting) by our next meeting, I'll be
ready to vote (on the route)."
In other business:
* Taxes, in various forms, caught the
attention of the BCC.
Phyllis Vancas, president of Clay Coun-
ty Habitat for Humanity, presented a
mock check to the commission. The check
for $60,137 represented the combined real
estate taxes paid into Clay County coffers
by owners of Habitat homes.
Still discussing taxes, Commissioner
Christy Fitzgerald introduced discus-
sion of "portability of tax assessments,"
a proposed constitutional amendment
being considered by the Florida Legisla-
ture. Such a measure, if passed, would
enable sellers to transfer tax assessments
from less expensive property to more
expensive property if the new property
is bought within one year. There are
other, technical restrictions, as well.
Fitzgerald pointed out that such an
amendment would handicap the County
in providing services to its citizens.
"It's amazing to me," Lassiter said,
"how the Legislature is anxious to pass
out tax breaks on the backs of local gov-
ernment." He suggested a letter to the
Florida Association of Counties.
"The measure is not realistic," Fitzger-
ald said. "The more the community is up-
graded, the more citizens want services
upgraded. If this passes, we won't be able
to upgrade anything."
Turning to a request from the NEFR-
PC, Commissioner Harold Rutledge, a

Opinion


Man's zeal to chase thief


admirable, but don't do it


It's easy to like construction-worker-
turned-car-thief-catcher Tim Smith.
A guy with a big smile, easy-going man-
ner and an even bigger heart, this new-
comer to Clay County set an example
earlier this month that we all can admire.
But we shouldn't necessarily follow.
You may remember Smith, a 41-year-
old Pennsylvania native who moved to
Clay County just three months ago with his
wife and son. He was the guy who was sit-
ting in his house eating a noontime sand-
wich on Saturday, Feb. 4, when he saw his
heavy-duty Dodge Ram truck driving off
without him in it.
The problem was Smith hadn't given
anyone permission to drive it.
Now for most people the story would
end with a quick call to the police and the
hope the person would be caught A thief,
possibly armed, is stealing your truck. Let
it go and have the police take care of it.
But Smith admits he isn't that kind of
guy. That was his specially modified truck
with his 16-foot trailer filled with materials
and tools, and he wasn't about to let any-
body steal his livelihood.
Grabbing his pants (he had come home
soaked after working in the morning and
his wife made him take them off) Smith
took off in his wife's minivan for what
turned out to be a 20-minute chase down
several Orange Park streets.
At one point, the stolen truck allegedly
went barreling through the Charles &
George Carwash on U.S. 17 ata time when it
was packed with customers and employees.
Then when Smith came up behind the
truck a short time later, the thief backed up
and rammed the minivan. Fortunately
Smith wasn't hurt and even managed to
continue the pursuit.
On they went through town. Still flee-
ing Smith's pursuing minivan, the thief ac-
tually went down U.S. 17 and drove into
on-coming traffic as Smith followed in the
correct lane.
The Saturday afternoon pursuit ended


-eWl


a few minutes later, however, when the thief
crashed the truck into a large tree on Mor-
gan Circle. The impact sent the heavy trail-
er careening into a power pole that fell over
and knocked out power to several homes.
That's when things got really interest-
ing. Apparently uninjured, the truck driv-
er managed to get out of the wrecked
truck and take off running. But Smith,
who had pulled up moments later,
jumped out and caught the guy and held
him until police arrived.
If this wasn't real life, you would think a
movie director would yell, "Cut."
Unfortunately, it was very real.
Smith's zeal to pursue someone is un-
derstandable. We Americans applaud
Smith's independence and determination
to keep what we earned with hard work.
But let's keep it in perspective. It's Satur-
day. Kids are playing outside. Clay County
roads, as always, are jammed.
The opportunity for disaster loomed
very large.
Had something happened, had the
thief in his zeal to get away run headlong
into an oncoming car the story would have
been much different.
Nothing, not a one-of-a-kind truck or
landscaping tools, would have justified
such a crash.
Smith, to his credit, knows all this. He's a
good guy who also went out of his way to
get some stolen merchandise he found
later in the truck back to its owner. He just
got caught up in the moment, or rather, a
very scary 20 minutes.
Fortunately, nobody got hurt.


Dear Editor:

I would like to thank all who were in-
volved in helping me after my accident
on Kingsley Avenue and Plainfield Street
Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 5 p.m.
Those include the men who removed
me from my vehicle, the lady who kept
her arm around me and called my family,


the rescue people who were so proficient
and kind, and to all the others who cared
enough to help and to all God's angels
who surrounded this accident.

LETTER from page A-4


Writer remembers time when
husband was tall, handsome
Dear Editor:
This is a romantic story that I would
like to share with Clay Today.
I met my husband at a New Year's Eve
Dance that my dad had escorted me into
at the NCO Club in Oahu, Hawaii. I wore
a pale blue gown with a cowl neckline as


Veronica Lake type. When I walked into
the ballroom, my soon-to-be-husband
saw me and said WOW she is beautiful.
He came over and asked me to dance. We
fell in love. He was tall, dark and hand-
some with blue eyes and black hair. When
we danced, I was on a cloud. He was a su-
perb ballroom dancer. The song was
"Isn't it Romantic", and the next song was
"I'm Climbing Up the Stairs to the Stars."
It was during World War II and we
separated for four and a half years dur-
ing the war. We were both Pearl Harbor


survivors. We wrote love letters to each
other every day during the war. When we
were reunited the Romance started all
over again. We shared our love for classi-
cal music, and our song was "Intermez-
zo." He is now in Heaven and I reside at
HQM of Orange Park Nursing Home. I
am 84 years of age and the romance is
still as strong as ever.
Aloha Nui Loa,
(Love from my heart)
LaniDole

Morgan seeks another term


By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff

ORANGE PARK -Pete Morgan
wasn't sure he was going to run for .
another term on the Orange Park .
town council.
However, he says calls from mem-
bers of the community convinced
him that by serving another term he
would help continue the town's progress.
The town election is Tuesday, March 14.
Morgan, known for his straight talk on
the council, says he sees serving on the
council as a public service job.
He said he likes the other council mem-
bers, adding he thinks they all respect each
other and their opinions as they try to work
out the best avenue to address issues.
He sees future issues before the council
coming down to generating a sense of
place for the town.
To that end, he is in favor of the new sig-
nage program the town is taking on to both


standardize signage and es-
tablish town boundaries.
. 2:U The continuing work at
the Clarke Park property
: has his support, as it will add
to the town's identity.
When deciding budget
issues, Morgan said he asks
ete Morgan himself, "If this was my
ete Morgan .money what would I do?"
"We paid cash for both the new Public Safe-
ty and Public Works buildings, "said Mor-
gan, citing the expenditures as examples
of how he thinks the council saves money
for citizens.
"We've spent a lot of time and money
staying ahead of the curve by paying cash
and now that those projects are complete,
we can address other needs in the town like
paving and the improvement of Clarke
Park," said Morgan
Morgan chairs the town's Site Develop-
ment Review Committee and sees that
much of the town's development is coming


as either in-fill or redevelopment activity.
Morgan says to be able to attract develop-
ers to non-conforming sites there may be a
need to look at the development regulations
to address individual sites other wise those
sites will remain vacant or in the case of the
"Taco Bell" site on Park Avenue, empty.
Morgan praises town employees, in-
cluding manager John Bowles, for the
work they do.
'There is really nothing broken here, we
need to keep a steady course towards im-
proving the town so Orange Park looks
better and stays economically viable," said
Morgan, a general contractor who recent-
ly remodeled Island Baptist Church.
A member of Habitat for Humanity's
board, he is partnering with Ben Dinkins to
develop new affordable housing for home-
owners on Railroad Avenue.
Morgan, who has hiked a third of the
Appalachian Trail, says before he dies he
plans to complete the trail (more than
2,000 miles).


Hutton challenges incumbent


By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff
disraelnesser@jcpgroup.comn

ORANGE PARK- Marge Hutton, who is
challenging Pete Morgan for Orange
Park council, describes herself as a busi-
ness and patient advocate.
"I've worked with people from all
walks of life," said Hutton, who is re-
tired from a business career as a med-
ical office manager and is involved in
the business community.
The town election is Tuesday, March 14.
As chair of the Chamber of Commerce
Government Affairs Committee, Hutton
was in Tallahassee last week lobbying state


legislators for the
chamber.
In her role as the

ton tracks legislation
and keeps the chamber
informed relative to its
interests, a very famil-
iar role for her.
Marge Hutton Starting in the 1980's
Hutton became in-
volved in the Clay County Medical Alliance
with regard to physician and patient issues.
That activity led her to become president of
the Florida Medical Alliance in 1995.
While she has not run for office in the

past, Hutton has a history of working on
other local campaigns including those for
John Thrasher and Jim Home, both for-
mer legislators.
Hutton's mode of operation - get or-
ganized, put in time and dedication,
choose a task and get it done - is one she
says she would bring to the council.
Hutton says she has seen a lot of
changes in Orange Park since coming
here 19 years ago.
"We need housing that teachers, and po-
lice/fire personnel, can afford,"saidHutton.
She says one of herpriorities, as a council
member will be to advocate the preparation
of a "well conceived plan for smart growth".
Like Morgan, she wants to see what can
be done to assist non-compliant properties
to meet development requirements.
With respect to signage, she has some
questions about the sign ordinance adopt-
ed by the council last year and feels it needs
to be "tweaked".
She wants to see the town keep busi-
nesses in Orange Park and taxes low to
maintain a business friendly atmosphere.
Hutton sees having a long-term vision
for the town, out to 15 years, as being a pri-
ority for the council.
Having a road plan that sets priorities is
also important to Hutton.
"It would keep us from doing short
term fixes like those proposed on DeBar-
ry," said Hutton. "Why can't we be anoth-
er San Marco?"
She said Orange Park is like a beautiful
cruise ship that just needs to head into the
right direction.

County holds

off outdoor

advertising

By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff
disraelmesser@jcpgrotup.com

GREEN COVE SPRINGS -KH Out-
door L.L.C., an outdoor advertising
company, has struck out twice in the
last year in Clay County.
The most recent loss by the
company comes after the initial
filing of a lawsuit against Clay
County in 2004.
In March 2004, the company
attempted to apply to the county
for seven sign permits, each for a
billboard totaling 672 square feet.
Under the ordinance in place at
the time, County Zoning Director
Cheryl Miller did not accept the per-
mits, as billboards were not permitted.
However, the company requested
that Miller formally deny the appli-
cations, which she did.
The company then filed a lawsuit
indicating it felt the sign ordinance
was unconstitutional and content-
based, such as attempting to regulate
speech based upon the type of
speech involved.
Between the time KH Outdoor
applied for the sign permits and the
court considered the lawsuit, the
county, in June 2004, replaced the
existing sign ordinance with a new
sign ordinance.
The new ordinance more com-
pletely addressed questions regard-
ing the county's interest in not
approving the placement of bill-
boards, for example relating the in-
terest to avoid visual clutter and
reduce safety hazards.
According to the order in favor of
Clay County, U.S. DistrictJudge Tim-
othy Corrigan said there was no bad
faith on the part of the county in
adopting a new sign ordinance nor
did KH Outdoor have any vested
rights to a permit.
Last year, in August, the same
judge dismissed a lawsuit by the
company against the town of Or-
ange Park.
That lawsuit also sought to have
permits for billboards approved.
Orange Park and the county
hired the same Jacksonville attor-
ney, William Brinton, to both con-
struct their new sign ordinances
and to defend them in court against
KH Outdoor.

FIRE from page A-1
the living room with a garden hose.
Flames were coming through the ceiling
and she was spraying the whole area.
When I first saw her in the living room,
there were flames-all around her. I took
her by the arm, told her she had to get out
of danger and led her to the door. As
soon as we were outside, she ran around
to the back and re-entered the house. I
went back in, got her again and took her
back out. When she went back in, she
looked like she was walking through fire.
"When we came out the second time, a
sheriff's deputy had arrived and he told
us we had to leave the property."
Capt. Bernita Bush, public informa-
tion officer for Clay County Fire Rescue,
said before she could leave her office, an-


other call for assistance came in.
Before it was over, stations 17, 18,
22,13,15, Squadl41, Rescue 76, Battalion
One, Fire One, and several support per-
sonnel had responded. The home was
heavily involved upon arrival of the units.
The Clay Countyv Sheriffs Office
rerouted traffic around the area for a
short time.
Bush said, "A female resident, later
identified as Minnie Moore, was home,
but was out of the building when fire-
fighters arrived. She denied injury on
scene. One firefighter, however, was
treated for smoke inhalation."
"The home sustained heavy smoke
and fire damage. Loss estimates are not
currently available."
The cause of the fire remains under
investigation.

NASCAR driver settles in Orange Park with car dealership


ByTrisha Cormeny, Staff
tcormeny@jcpgroup.com

ORANGE PARK- He traversed the
continent racing into the homes of
millions over the years before retiring
to Clay County and opening Geoff
Bodine's World of Cars on Wells Road
Feb. 1.
"There's a lot of race fans in this
area," said two-time Daytona 500 win-
ner Geoffrey Bodine. "Sponsors want
the younger kids today and I need to
stay busy."
So Bodine teamed with old friends
Dick Freyer and Forrest Plank to
open a specialty used car lot selling
low mileage,'higher end vehicles such
as Corvettes, Mercedes,Jaguars, Mus-
tangs, T-Birds and Navigators to the
Clay County community.
"We want to sell good cars to peo-
ple," said Bodine, who says he not only !
sells the cars on his lot, but would also ;
own them.
In fact, one vehicle for sale is Bod- The
line's on Z06 yellow Corvette. "The Ka
market for higher end vehicles is
strong in this area, but no one has gone
after it."
As unique as his reputation, Bodine's
store doesn't buy its stock like other deal-
ers who must contend with what's given
them. Instead, the dealership owners
travel from auction to auction, hand-
picking what will sit on their sales floor.
"We're eliminating the middleman
because we buy at the factory auctions

e staff of Geoff Bodine's World of Cars is ready to serve customers. Shown are, from left, R
cena, Forrest Planck, retired NASCAR racer Geoff Bodine, and Carol Walls.


and bring them right here," said Bodine.
"This way, we can offer better prices for
good values. We're just getting stocked up
and building our inventory."
Even if customers have looked over
the lot and can't find something the staff
can work with them, the former racecar
driver says.
"We can purchase anything anyone
wants," said Bodine.


The dealership has also made connec-
tions with others in the car business. "If
someone wants something else we can get
it. We have a partnership with a ford deal-
er in North Carolina...If we need cars he
might have, he brings them on down."
But racing memories and fast cars is
not all Bodine partakes in these days.
Since retiring after an extensive and
very famous career in racing, Bodine


has taken up a new sport. While
watching the 1992 Winter Olympics
on television, Bodine realized the
need for American bobsledders to
have an American-made bobsled.
Teaming with NASCAR Modified
Chasis builder Bob Cuneo, Bodine
created Bo-Dyn Bobsleds utilizing
racecar engineering and state-of-
the art technology.
"I'm known more as Bobsledding
Bodine around the world than as a
race car driver," said Bodine, who re-
members standing at the finish line
when the Winter Olympics last came
to the U.S. "It was another fantastic
feeling to know that the whole Unit-
ed States is cheering for something
you're a part of. Our kids have really
done well the last three or four years.
Hopefully we will be back on the
podium with many medals."
Back home in Clay County, Bodine
says he's content traveling in the slow-
ELL er lane, buying a home in Green Cove
on Springs and setting up the shop on
Wells Road that will not only sell cars,
but also marine and automotive care
products from Geoffrey Bodine's Waxing
Frenzy.
"This is just the first of many Geoff
Bodine World of Cars dealerships," said
Bodine. "We're starting with one and hop-
ing to end with a dozen someday."
Geoff Bodine's World of Cars is locat-
ed at 605 Wells Road. For more informa-
tion or to reminisce with Bodine about
his career, call 264-6537.

mother Pat's lasagna that is the biggest
hit, up there-with Sal's pizza, and the can-
noli, all of which are made on site.
"She's the connoisseur of cooking,"
said LaRosa.
For those with pizza as part of their
diet stable, the New York pizza with
homemade sauce can't be beat.
The LaRosas have had a restaurant
history, with father, Salvatore, having
been in the restaurant business in Little
Italy in New York 40 years ago.
"We want people to be happy with
their food and to feel like they are being
served by family," said Sal Anthony.
A spacious restaurant with comfort-
able seating, the restaurant provides a
home-like atmosphere as patrons are
greeted as they enter.


With a packed house every day, they
already are expanding their hours of op-
eration. Their new hours are 10:30 a.m.- 9
p.m. on Sunday-Thursday and then 10:30
a.m.-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Lunch specials are a special treat pa-
trons can expect daily.
The restaurant does take-out orders
and is looking forward to providing
catering services in the future.
"The area needed a restaurant where
people could get homemade food," said
Sal Anthony.
Along with opening the restaurant,
about a year and a half ago, 19 members
of the family moved to Clay County.
The family stayed close, with all of them
living in a neighborhood off Old Middle-
burg Road, not far from the restaurant

Heart Gallery shows faces of region's adoptable children
I ., -;V R - . .: .1


By Kelly J. Stigliano, Correspondent

ORANGE PARK-Have you seen them?
Those bright and hopeful faces displayed
byJ.C. Penney's in the Orange Park Mall?
Those are the faces of children in Clay,
Baker and Nassau counties who are avail-
able for adoption. They are boys and girls
of all ages who currently live in loving
foster homes in the tri-county area.
They are the faces of the local Heart
Gallery, a mobile display residing in the
mall during the month of February.
The original Heart Gallery started in
New Mexico in 2001. It was the brainchild
of a photographer. He thought person-
alized photos of children awaiting adop-
tion would be more "telling" than the
normal mug-shot style of photos seen in
files and on websites.
Learning the personalities and per-
sonal preferences of each child before
the photo session is paramount. Photog-
raphers then create the perfect environ-
ment to make the child come alive in the
shots, better reflecting exactly who these
kids are. Cards by each child's photo-
graph tell their story.
Sponsored by Family Support Ser-
vices, the Gallery is designed to get the
word out that there are children who
need loving homes.
Irene Toto, director of Clay Baker
Kid's Net, says the Gallery has been a
huge success.
Every call they receive concerning one
of the children featured in the Gallery is
a 100 percent increase of interest from
before the Gallery existed.
The faces on the Heart Gallery will be
continually changing. As soon as a child
becomes available for adoption, his or
her photo.and biography will be added to
the display. The Gallery is new locally,
having just started in October of last year.
"It's been phenomenal since the
Gallery opened," said Carolyn Klucha,
Heart Gallery coordinator. "Working
with Channel 47 (the local CBS-TV affil-
iate) has been-a good partnership, too.
Every Friday on the 5:30 news an adopt-
able child is highlighted."
"The Heart Gallery will be displayed
at the Capitol in Tallahassee on May 3-5,
2006 during the last week of the Legisla-
tive sessions," Klucha said. "It is our
hope that the Gallery will get the atterin-
tion and support of our government
leaders and lobbyists."
She hopes the Gallery will create
awareness and garner support from fed-
eral legislators.
She would like to see their financial
support in the way of added benefits and
marketing. She hopes to see bills and laws

passed on issues directly affecting the
children, their foster families and their
adoptive families.
With an average of 3,000 children in
foster care, and a few hundred awaiting
adoptions, the Heart Gallery is the arm
into the public that has been needed.
By putting the faces and bios of adopt-
able children out to the populace, more
people call to inquire about the adoption
process. More people are learning the
procedures, mandates and opportunities,
thus resulting in more children finding
permanent homes.
"My hope overall for the Heart Gallery
is to get people talking about it," Klucha
said. "If people talk to others about
adopting foster children - the low cost;
that it's not difficult - that would be best
for the kids."
Three of the children on the Jack-
sonville Heart Gallery were included
in the Heart Gallery at Union Station
in Washington, D.C., which had chil-
dren featured from Galleries across
the country.
Klucha attributes it to the photogra-
phers, their skills and especially the time
they take with each child.

'Wad o O Day' padres moving



'Wizard of Oz Day' plans moving right along


By Trisha Cormeny, Staff
tcormeuny@jcpgToup.com

ORANGE PARK- With less than a month
to go, plans are quickly falling into place
for Clay County's first-ever Wizard of Oz
Day, and organizers say each passing week
brings more community interest in the
March 11 event.
Event co-chairperson Cindy Bosnyak
said many changes have occurred since the
first announcement was made about the
afternoon event occurring at the Orange
Park Mall.
Michelle Nugent will replace Elaine
Horne as "Dorothy" and Orange Park
High School drama students will portray
The Tin Man, Scarecrow, Lion and Wicked
Witch.
"Everything's going really good," said
Bosnyak. "Ticket sales are boosting and
we're really excited about the event."
Wizard of Oz Day, the first of its kind for
Clay County, was initiated to honor Penney
Farms' resident Meinhardt Raabe, who
played the Munchkin coroner in the 1939
classic movie.
"I love him," Nugent said of Raabe. "He's
very sweet and gracious. He's been hon-
ored all over the country. As much as he's

"I guess they thought I looked like
Dorothy," said theJacksonville University
alumnus. "When you love being Dorothy
and are passionate about the movie, people
just automatically think of you."
This won't be Nugent's first stage ap-
pearance, either. The Orange Park native,
who also serves as worship pastor of Em-
maus Road Church of Orange Park, per-
forms with Pendulum Productions and
has taken to the stage at Disney World in
Orlando for various performances.
"Dorothy'slife kind of mirrors my own be-

said Nugent, who teaches music and piano

Bosnyak. "Its going to be an event
Clay County citizens won't want
to miss."

In fact, some of her students have
signed on to portray munchkins as part of
the day's festivities. "It's a wonderful op-
portunity to bring people in the Clay
County community together. Already
there's a lot of camaraderie in the county as
we prepare for this event."

Clay schools get jumpin' for the heart


Special to Clay Today
ORANGE PARK - Kids running and
jumping on an elementary school play-
ground isn't news. But when their jumping
raises money for the American Heart As-
sociation it takes on a whole new meaning.
The students and some faculty members
at Grove Park Elementary raised about
$2,891 through donations, including about
$500 brought in by two administrators.
"We have done it over the past seven
years and raised more than $20,000 for
the Heart Association," said physical edu-
cation teacher Rose Woolwine. "I couldn't


be more proud of our kids."
The two administrators - Assistant
Principal Renee Woodruff and coun-
selor Vava Barton - talked to family and
friends, including $200 from some mem-
bers of the Clay County Sheriff's Office,
who came to the school to personally
watch herjump.
Woodruff said she enjoyed taking her
turn jumping rope.
"I can't ask the kids to do it if I won't do
it myself," she said with a laugh.
Students at other Clay County schools,
including Middleburg Elementary, joined
in to raise funds for the Heart Association.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago a hit



with THCA audience, on and off stage


Special to Clay Today
ORANGE PARK - WhenJonathan Cook
arrived at the Thrasher-Home Center for
the Arts on Saturday, Feb. 11, for the Hub-
bard Street Dance Chicago (HDSC) per-
formance, he wasn't sure he would enjoy
sitting through two hours of dance. "This
was my first dance performance," said
Cook, a student at St.Johns River Commu-
nity College. "I had no idea what to expect."
Two hours later, as the curtain closed
on a second standing ovation, Cook knew
he had just witnessed something special.
"The Hubbard Street Dance perform-
ance was interesting and entertaining," he
said. "I loved the second number (Strokes
Through The Tail)where the menworelong
skirts and danced on their tip-toes... it was so
funny. The crowd really got into it. I thought
the whole performance was unique... the
different body movements those dancers
did and their flexibility... Wow!"
His classmate, Kristin Mitchell, agrees.
"I liked the last number the best," she
said. "I like how the dancers got involved
with the audience at the end... bringing au-
dience members up on stage and dancing
with them. Everyone looked like they were
having such a good time. I like dance the-
ater and this is close to one of the best
dance performances I have ever seen."
Mary Williams, a Clay County resident,
drove back from a business trip just to
make the 7:30 p.m. curtain. Her son was one
of the 22 randomly selected audience
members who ended the evening on stage
alongside the company's dancers.
"My son was on stage, how cool," said
Williams, a former choreographer that has

seen HSDC several times and just could not
get over how inexpensive tickets to the
THCA performance were. "I would not
have missed this, and people who did not
attend, well they have no idea what they
missed. I told you it was great. Everything
about this performance; the costumes, the
choreography, the lighting, the music... it
was so good."
In his curtain speech, THCA Executive
Director Tony Walsh said he waited to pres-
ent dance at the Center until he could pres-
ent the very best and in his opinion
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is the best.


A long-standing friendship with the
Company's Artistic DirectorJim Vincent
played a major role.
."My relationship withJim dates back to
1976," said Walsh. "When I was a professor
of drama at the North Carolina School of
the ArtsJim was an exceptional student. I
cast him to dance a special role in a musical.
I knew then that he was destined for an in-
credible career in the performing arts. I
was not proved wrong. I have remained in
contact withJim, his wife and their families
through out the years. This contact afford-
ed me the opportunity to present Hubbard


Street Dance Chicago as the THCAs first
major dance offering."
Dance students at the Florida School
of the Arts, located on the Palatka Campus
of StJohns River Community College, also
benefited from the company's visit. On Fri-
day, one of the company's principal
dancers,Jamy Meek, taught a master class
where he instructed FloArts dance stu-
dents. The two- hour master class gave stu-
dents insight on everything from warm up
techniques to preparing for a career in the
world of professional dance.
"The master class was a positive learn-
ing experience for our students," said Flori-
da School of the Arts Dean Dr. Gary Piazza.
Prior to Saturday's performance, audi-
ence members interacted with HSDC
Artistic DirectorJim Vincent during a pre-
performance talk. Candace Bridgewater, a
member of the THCA Board of Visitors
and her husband Erie attended.
"Neither Erle nor I are experienced in
watching dance so this was a new experi-
ence for us and we so loved it," said Bridge-
water. "The director of the company spoke
for half an hour before the performance
and we really enjoyed that. It gave us a few
things to watch for during the performance
and a good introduction to the show. Ijust
can't say enough about the performance -
if you saw it you understand - if you didn't
get to see it be sure to go the next time."
Next up for the THCA are the harmo-
nious sounds of the All-American Boys
Chorus on Saturday, Feb. 25. The evening
fs sponsored by Jack andJoy Myers. A Clos-
er Walk with Patsy Cline takes the main
stage on Friday, March 3; tickets for this per-
formance are selling fast.

Step-Up event raises awareness
Participants in the Step-Up Florida event held at Orange Park Town Hall had their
choice of several tasty goodies before heading out for a walk along River Road.
The month-long event, which passed through Clay County on Friday, Feb. 10, and
was locally sponsored by the Clay County Health Department, is to encourage a
healthy lifestyle among Florida residents. A group of bicyclists brought a Step Up
Florida flag that started in Miami, Feb. 1, from Green Cove Springs to Orange
Park Feb. 10, and later passed the flag to Bradford County participants as it makes
to Duval County Feb. 28. Several local companies provided items for the event,
including Winn-Dixie, Rowe's Supermarkets and Orange Park Medical Center.

St. Johns senior enjoys power of the pen


By Trisha Cormeny, Staff
tcotmey@jcpgroup.cotn

ORANGE PARK- With pen in hand,Jen-
nifer Cowie sets to work editing this week's
latest news article, demonstrating a love for
the written word few share.
The St.Johns Country Day School sen-
ior immerses herself in the written word
whenever possible, taking on the position
of editor of the school paper, The Saints'
Scroll, and spearheading this year's annual
school literary magazine, Afterthoughts..
"Writing is something I really enjoy,"
said Cowie. "I feel like I can express myself
and get my thoughts out there for the
world to see. I like seeing things come to-
gether and as cheesy as it sounds, there is a
lot of power to the pen."
The 17-year-old's passion isn'tjust writing,
however. She also takes on varsity crew, the
school's Student Council secretarial position,
Honor Council, National Honor Society
and, of course, various drama productions.
"I live on the water. So being able to row
and be out there is really neat," said Cowie.
"I have horrible hand-eye coordination so
rowing just seemed perfect It's very relax-
ing. I learned alot about the mechanics be-
hind it. It's a very social sport."
Cowie says she would not have been

"How can we improve?" asks Scroll editor Jennifer Cowie, seated, during a newspa-
per meeting at St. Johns Country Day School.


able to keep up her 4.2 grade point average
if it weren't for the support of her fellow
classmates and teachers at SJCDS.
"I love the atmosphere here," said Cowie.
"Most of my teachers and I have a very per-
sonal relationship with each other."
One such teacher is journalism advisor


Jim Schad.
'"Jennifer's one of the very few with a
high standard of character," said Schad.
"She's just on of those very few students
who you know will make a difference in
the world. It's very rare when you see a
person whose passion for the written


word is so obvious."
Cowie says her constant inspiration has
been her grandfather, a cancer survivor.
"Throughout the whole experience, he
has been the most patient, upbeat, half-glass
full kind of person," said Cowie. "Even
though he's aging, he's doing it gracefully.
He's a very positive and fun person to be
around. Sometimes when I have a setback,
hejust puts stuff into perspective for me and
helps me get through the trivial things."
With her grandfather's advice and the
knowledge she's learned at St.Johns, Cowie
says she's ready for the future, making
plans to attend the University of Florida
and major in advertising and psychology.
"It applies to my day-to-day life," said
Cowie, who says she does not want to go
into journalism because she wants to be
close to family. "Perhaps advertising will
satisfy my creative needs. I'd like to be able
to incorporate the arts in my major be-
cause it's something I enjoy."
Whatever Cowie decides, Schad says she
will succeed with flying colors.
"Every once in a while you'll see a per-
son who stands out," said Schad, who's at-
tended SJCDS since kindergarten. "One
day, this young girl will make a mark."
Cowie is the daughter of Dr. Robert and
Diane Cowie of Orange Park

ST. AUGUSTINE- Dozens of students
from the southeastern United States par-

Teams demonstrate their creative abil-
ities through the preparation of a three-

avenues to prepare a student for employ-
ment and the pressure of an industry
kitchen," said Chef Noel Ridsdale, FCTI
culinary coordinator.
Team FCTI created a meal for four
people and earned a bronze medal for
appearance, presentation, creativity, and
teamwork. Chef Glen Knight, FCTI In-

Base firefighters earn 'Life Safety Achievement Award'


By Miriam S. Gallet
JaxA irNews


NASJACKSONVILLE- Once again, the
NASJacksonville Fire Department person-
nel distinguished themselves by winning
the 2005 Life Safety Achievement Award.
Given annually by the Residential Fire
Safety Institute (RFSI), the award was an-
nounced Thursday by Roy Marshall, direc-
tor of the RFSI. The department won its first
Life Safety Achievement Award in 1995 and
in each-consecutive year since. Even though
the award was delayed by the disastrous 2005
hurricane season, it was welcomed with
great pride by station fighter fighters.
"It doesn't matter that it is few months
late in its arrival," said NASJax Fire Chief
Randy Hall. "It's a group award that we
would like to share with the entire NASJax
family. This award tells us that everyone
aboard the station, Sailors, Department of
Defense civilians and contractors, are
doing their part and adhering to fire regu-
lations and keeping safety at the forefront
of everything they do."
According to Marshall, for the past 12
years the Life Safety Achievement Award

The year-round efforts of the Fire Prevention Division were the driving force behind
NAS Jacksonville winning the Life Safety Achievement Award. NAS Jax won its first
Life Safety Achievement Award in 1995 and in each consecutive year since. Shown
are, from left, Fire Inspectors Paul Miller and Rick Vandersteen, Assistant Chief of Fire
Prevention Charles McCoy, Fire Inspectors Doug Thomas and Robert Winchester.


has recognized the local fire prevention
activities that contributed to reducing the
number of lives lost in residential fires.
"The NASJacksonville Fire Department


qualified for this award in 2004 because it
recorded zero fire deaths in structures
during that year," he said. "Although resi-
dential fires in the U.S. account for only 20
percent of all fires, they result in 80 per-
cent of all fire deaths. The RFSI is com-
mitted to reducing that number and so is
NASJacksonville.
"Experience tells us that fire preven-
tion activity and public education can sig-
nificantly reduce life and property loss
from residential fires. Prevention and ed-
ucation are very cost effective compared
to the traditional approach of relying on
fire suppression."

moved to be close to h i
family. One of six children,
Alma was born to Elam and Lucy Green
in Doctor's Inlet, FL on Dec. 27, 1920.
Alma was baptized as a child into the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints, and kept her faith throughout her
life. In 1942, Alma married Richard D.
Starling. Shortly after their marriage,
they were separated by his call to service
in the U.S. Army during World War II.
After reuniting, they had three daugh-


ters. Within her family, Alma emphasized
the importance of showing love and car-
ing toward each other. Alma and her hus-

County Elections office receives avoter identification equipment training


Special to Clay Today
GREEN COVE SPRINGS - The Clay
County Supervisor of Elections Office
staff trained for the new EVID (Electron-
ic Voter ID) equipment that will be used
throughout the county during early vot-
ing. This new equipment recognizes a
voter from just a swipe of their Florida
driver's license or Florida ID card.
Each early voting site throughout the
county will be using the EVID to speed
up the voting process. During the last
election, early voting was available only
in the main office of the Supervisor of


Elections in Green Cove Springs. The
branch offices offered absentee ballots
during the early voting periods. For the
Primary and General elections to be
held this year, early voting will be avail-
able at several locations using the iV-
otronic, touch screen voting system and
the EVID for voter information and
identification.
The EVID utilizes a magnetic strip
reader, similar to an ATM or supermarket
checkout, although when your Florida
driver's license is scanned, it brings up
your voter information. The EVID oper-
ator will print out a "voting pass" that


shows the voters registration status and
what ballot style they should receive.
When you proceed to the iVotronic, a poll
worker will place a PEB (personal elec-
tronic ballot) into the iVotronic and select
the ballot style that is listed on your "vot-
ing pass". Once the ballot is loaded into
the iVotronic, the voter will cast the elec-
tronic ballot in private.
The EVID will also assist in combating
voter fraud by updating the new
statewide voter registration database to
reflect that the voter has cast a ballot in


that election, preventing any voter from
voting twice.
The Supervisor of Elections Office
will participate in the Clay County Agri-
cultural Fair again this year and will have
the new equipment on display for
demonstrations and explanation. Bar-
bara Kirkman urges all voters in the
county to stop by and try the new equip-
ment for themselves. To schedule a
group demonstration, call Jennie Bailey
at the Elections Office at 904-284-6350 or
904-269-6350.

ago," Smith said, "and I thought it was gone
forever. But this kid found it and got it back
to the high school and they gave it to me.

for someone else I would."

* Several meetings ago, the BCC re-
fused a land-use plan amendment made
by the owners of The Ravines in Middle-

opposed the plan and some supported it.
After the request was refused, the
property owner requested an informal
mediation. At the Tuesday BCC meeting,
County Attorney Mark Scruby presented
proposed guidelines for conducting the
mediation.
The guidelines, as proposed, would
limit participants to representatives of the
two parties - in this case the landowner
and the County. The two opposing groups
plus property owners on Green Road also
may have one representative each who
could participate in discussion but would
have no authority to approve or reject a

process would be open to the public but
they would not be permitted to speak.

The installation of security cam-
eras was also identified as a high pri-
ority by the Task Force. However, after
discussion, this consideration was
considered with less priority than the
above. If a camera system was imple-

that since security staff was required,
they could better serve the District by

room to work out a possible compromise.
The BCC decided not to take formal
action on the proposal so that it would not
limit the process.


* Initiate a survey of all educational
facilities to review and implement a
"hardening of facilities" program to,
through modification of doors, win-
dows, locks and other physical aspects,

* Initiate a pilot program to establish
a "lights,-out" after-hours school. This
program will make it more difficult if
intruders enter a building and ob-
servers can easily spot any lights that
should not be on. The selection of the
pilot school should be chosen and co-
ordinated with input from law en-
forcement. A review should take place
annually to determine the expansion
of the program."

Broncos top Bishop Kenney;



next stop is state finals


CORRESPONDENT PHOTOS BY TONYA DAVIE
It appears that the Broncos are pointing south as they are heading to the state finals in Fort Lauderdale.


By, Tonya Davie, Correspondent
MIDDLEBURG - After traveling consec-
utive years to play Bishop Kenney in the
state regional playoffs the Middleburg
Broncos soccer team was happy to get the
Crusaders on their home turf when they
hosted them Friday, Feb. 10 in the region-
al finals and a berth in the Class 4A final


four tomorrow afternoon at Lockhart
Stadium in Ft. Lauderdale.
However, The Broncos would have to
play Bishop Kenney without one of their
top players in forward Michael McDonald,
who on doctors orders had to sit out the
game with a mild concussion, four chipped
teeth and temporary memory loss.
McDonald's injury took place in the


Broncos 4-0 win over Pensacola Washing-
ton on Tuesday when he collided with the
goalkeeper and some feared he might be
lost for the rest of the season and would
dash the final four hopes of the Broncos.
After spending the night in a local Pen-
sacola hospital he returned home with
the team and even joined them for the
game against Bishop Kenney.
With McDonald on the sidelines and
Middleburg facing their nemesis, Bishop
Kenney, who had knocked them out of
the playoffs the last two seasons, Coach
Goodwin and the Broncos needed any
edge they could find, and one was team-
mateJake Giannini wore McDonald'sjer-
sey to help with the psychological edge.
And there was McDonald on the side-
line cheering his teammates on. "My
heart was pounding during the first part
of the game when there was no score,"
said McDonald.
Now all the Broncos needed was the
physical part of the game and forward
Zech Townsend got things started when
he powered a shot past the Kenney goal-
keeper for the first goal of the night with
a little over fifteen minutes left in the
first half.

Clay High grabs 7th


straight regional title,


set to vie for state title

Eight others from county qualify for state this week in Lakeland

JACKSONVILLE - When the wrestling,
season opened Clay High head coachJim
Reape felt his team had the depth and
wrestling experience to make a strong
run at their seventh straight Region 1A
title and a possible return trip to compete
for a state title.
"I really liked our chances at the re-
gional," said Reape.
"We knew Suwannee posed a threat but
as long as our guys did what they needed
to we would bejust fine," he added.
Well Reape and nine Blue Devil wrestlers
will get that opportunity to try and bring
home another state title, after they last won
in 2004 and placed fourth last year.
Clay trailed Suwannee 165.5 to 157.5
heading into the afternoon session on
Saturday at the Bolles School but a 5-4 win
by first year wrestler Stoney Raymond
over Suwannee'sJon Snyder helped give
Clay momentum and led them to a 218-
205 win and the regional title.
Following Raymond's victory the Blue
Devils won five of the next six matches
and watched as Garrett Soileau (103),
Travis Hartzog (125), Sean Wetherill (135),
Andy Milburn (140) and Larry Carnes
(145) all won regional championships in
their weight classes.


However, Clay's two-time state cham-
pion Cory Baudendistel lost his opening
bout against Wakulla'sJeremy Parmer 3-
2 and settled for a third place finish in the
130-pound weight class.
"It's not the end of the world for Cory,
he started slowly and maybe waitedjust a
little too long to pick it up in that match,"
said Reape.
Baudendistel recovered in the battle
for third place by pinning University
Christian's CoreyJames.
"Cory is a battler and this may be the
longer route to the state title but he will
give it all that he has. As a team I like our
chances, Cardinal Gibbons is bringing 11
wrestlers and Jupiter Christian is pretty
strong but I still like our depth. However
this is the deepest Region lA has been,"
added Reape.
Also making the trip for Clay will be
Jesse Velasco who finished fourth at (112),
Steven Joseph (119) along with Stoney
Raymond in the heavyweight class.
In Region 1-2A at Tallahassee Lincoln-
Ridgeview and Fleming Island battled for
4th and 5th place with Ridgeview getting
the nod with 94.5 points to Fleming Island's
87, while Middleburg settled for 10th place.
The title winners were Ridgeview's

St. Johns repeat dream ends in 1-0 semifinal loss


By TL Cochran, Correspondent

FORT LAUDERDALE - The defending
2A state champion St.John's girls' soccer
team didn't get a chance to defend their
title as they lost a 1-0 decision to the un-
derdog Maitland Orangewood Christian


St. Johns Haley Flynn (10) heads the ball a
opponent during semifinal action.


Academy Rams in the state semi-final
game at Lockhart Stadium Friday, Feb 10.
One early goal by Orangewood
eighth-grader Kelsey Affolter put the
Rams ahead and they held off the Spar-
tans the rest of the way to end their
dreams of a repeat.
It only took
four minutes
for Affolter to
score the

as she hooked
a shot past

Chance; they
then held St.

'"It's been a

son," said St.
Johns head
coach Mike
Pickett.

graders on the field. We
pressured them all game . :

break and took advantage
of some lucky bounces. But I,
give them credit, they won
and their goalkeeper made
some fantastic saves to keep
us out of the net," he added.
"My hat goes off to Or-
angewood; they're just as
young as we are too".
After jumping out to the
early lead, Orangewood
stepped back and defended

"I believe we dominated the CORRESPONDENT PHOTOS BY TL COCHRAN
game but could not put the Kara Moore (6) of St. Johns hops over Orangewood's
ballin the net", added Pickett. Kelsey Affolter in the offensive end.


The shutout was not from
lack of trying as the Spartans peppered
Orangewood goalkeeper Stephanie
Gagnon but she made every save needed
to keep the Spartans of the board.
She had ten saves in the game and Or-
angewood caught a break when St.Johns
junior and leading scorer Amanda Mar-
torana collided with an Orangewood
player and had to leave the game with a
possible concussion.
"We lost our go-to-player, and anytime


you do it is tough to replace", said Pickett.
"The younger girl's did all they could
but again itcame down to their goalkeep-
er," he added.
This was St John's third consecutive
trip to the final four and they defeated
eventual Class 2A winner American Her-
itage last year and one can expect Coach
Pickett and the StJohn's brain trust will
try to figure out a way to make a return
trip back next year.


Fleming Island girls Cinderella story ends in 4-1 loss


Bv TL Cochran. Corresoondent


FORT LAUDERDALE - The Cinderella
story of the Fleming Island Lady Eagles
and their trek to the soccer state finals
came to an end last week at the hands of
Valrico Bloomingdale High School from
Tampa in the semifinals.
Fleming Island's marched through four
very good teams, four overtime periods
and a set of penalty kicks periods and it ap-
peared they were on their way to the finals
after scoring the first goal of the game.
Chelsea Heath was in the right place at
the right time on an early corner kick to
tap in the ball. Heath did a great job of
finding the open area as the Blooming-
dale defense crowded the goal area but
she fought her way through the crowd to
score and the early celebration began.
The Lady Eagles held the favored Lady
Bulls scoreless until the last few seconds of
the half when Marissa Kazbour scored on
a rebound shot to tie the game at one.
The game-tying goal late in the half
was the beginning of the end for Fleming
Island as the Lady Bulls scored three
unanswered goals in the second half to
send the Eagles home with a lot more ex-
perience plus the determination to make

it back to the finals.
Fleming Island Athletic Director
Randy Warren said, "It's been a great sea-
son and they have nothing to hang their
heads about. It's always tough to lose but
the girl's played real well all season long.
In spite of the loss we're looking forward
to having another great season next year."
One of the keys to Fleming Island's suc-
cess this year has been the play of junior
sweeper Stephanie Patrylo who said, "We
really have nothing to be sad about, be-
cause we've come so far, and since we are
such a young team we can look forward to
another great season next year. We'll be
back next year and were going to win it".
Fleming Island who will only lose two
seniors from this team is already looking
forward to next year and they all shared
the same thoughts.
"No doubt we can make it back next
year," said head coach Darrel Ivey.
"We had a great season and we have
eighteen players coming back, it's incred-
ible how young we really are. We didn't
know what we were getting into, with no
long standing tradition to guide us; it's
just really incredible to be here. We'll be
back next year," he added.
Unfortunately, there were some tears
which was to be expected after a tough
game and on the losing end but not as
much as determination to learn from the
trip and make it back next year for the
Lady Eagles.
The team that is just three-years old
and moved from Class 4A to 5A prior to
the season and reached the final four will
stay largely intact and should be a force to
be reckoned with next year.

ORANGE PARK - The 2006 baseball got
underway this week and although the
weather has not cooperated just yet, we
are hoping for a nice hot season on the di-
amond this year.
Also tomorrow night prior to the Or-
ange Park - Ridgeview game the Raiders
will be retiring thejersey of former play-
er Stephen Dandridge who succumbed
to cancer late last year.
All are welcomed to come out and
watch the Raiders honor one of their
fallen heroes.
District 3-4A-
Ridgeview Panthers - Coach Bob
Adamson
Ridgeview lost some pop in the lineup
when catcher Ryan Hayes, first baseman
Clint Pullen and steady' second baseman
Kevin McClure all graduated.
However, the Panthers return ten sen-
iors including the cerebral Chris Simp-
kins at short, Danny Williamson,Jason
Fritz and Corey), West.
"I believe we have great chemistry
with this group," said Adamson.
"These guys have shown the team first
attitude and those come from behind
wins last year will carry over with this
group," he added.
Ridgeview has a veteran team and
should be deep on the mound, they
showed they could hit the ball well last
year and it should continue this year.
Middleburg Broncos - Coach Allan
Powers
The Broncos got off to a slow start last
year but put together a nice run towards
the end of last year that included a signa-
ture win over number #1 seed Paxon dur-
ing the district playoffs.
Coach Powers remained optimistic
about this year although he was dealt a
blow when projected number one starter
Derek Hey moved to California.
However, returning is senior catcher
Trey Cherry who had a breakout year last
season. He leads a team that returns their
whole infield including Brian Leino,
Alex Duffy, Travis Gonzales, Kyle Powers
and Chris Massey.
"I believe we have the potential to be a
good team, we will put the ball in play and
defend in the field," said Powers.
But the question remains who will step
up on the mound, Powers will look to
Garry Kott, Robert Mills and newcomer
Alex Manusutphakis to get the first starts
on the mound.
Powers also got good news when cen-
terfielder Andy Eddins who did not play
the last two years rejoined the team.
District 1-6A
Orange Park Raiders - Coach
MichaelJohns
The Raiders lost table setter Justin
Geiger, steady catcher Brian Martinez-
Torres and centerfielder David Zalupski.
Even with those losses Coach Johns
believes his lineup is as good as it has ever
been, "We will hit the ball well, I think
from the leadoff to the ninth spot we will
be tough," said Johns.


Returning to lead the Raiders are
shortstop Shane McIntyre, RJ. Duvall
and hard-hitting outfielder Kyle Nor-
man who hit over .400 last year.
Although the Raiders plan on scoring
many runs this year Johns knows his
team must field and catch to keep other
teams from scoring in bunches.
District 3-2A
Keystone Heights Indians - Coach
Alan Mattox
Keystone put together a very nice run
last year and Coach Mattox is very excit-
ed about this group although he lost
pitcher Michael Cormeau outfielder
Brandon Haves and catcher TraeJolley.
"I'm very excited about this group, we
have a chance to be very good this year,"
said Mattox.
Returning to lead the Indians are sen-
iors Anthony Gurate, Will Breton, David
Thomas and Lans Hardin
The Indians should play good sound
defense but pitching depth is the question.
"We will catch and throw the play well,
however, we are not very deep on the
mound. We will play a tough schedule
and go with our most experienced guys
on the mound," he added.
Fleming Island Golden Eagles -
Coach Don Suriano
District 3-5A
The Eagles peaked at the right time
last year to win their district over the likes
of Columbia, Paxon and Ridgeview.
Cdach Suriano did a greatjob of some-
timesusing as many as five pitchers a single
game but this year Fleming Island has made
the jump to Class 5A and will face teams like
Bart-amTrail, Wolfson, EnglewoodandPark-
er, along with the county teams.
Fleming Island lost their version of
the bash brothers in Brian Bradley and
Larry Feuerstein who spent most of the
season in the top ten in hitting.
Suriano has a senior and junior laden
team returning and they all experienced
a taste of a district title win.
Trey Strickland, Dustin Smith, Sergio
DeLeonJustin Smith and Daniel Melton
will man the infield while Brian O'Toole
will patrol in centerfield.
Juniors Scott Musser, CameronJuneau
and Lee Hall will lead on the mound with
Musser as the number one starter.
But facing the new district will be
tough for the Eagles who are just in their
third year however the experience of last
year should be helpful.
Clay Blue Devils - Coach Rob
Thompson
District 5-4A
Clay stumbled out of the gate last year
but rebounded over the second half of the
season to win 8 of their last 13 ballgames.
The Blue Devils only lost Joey Es-
pinoza from last year and are returning
seniors Damon Pifer,Jake Dunning, and
Chris Roberts.
In addition juniors Ben Carter, Roy
Knowles and Mike McCafferty should
bring some excitement to Clay who will
look to rival Nease for the top spot.
The Blue Devils also picked up trans-
fer from Fleming Island Kyle Hutchings
who will bring steady play to the infield.

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS - It appeared to
be d6ja vu for the Keystone Heights boys'
soccer team, but the outcome was not the
same in a 2-1 loss to visiting Lake High-
land Prep in the Region 2 Championship
match on Friday, Feb. 10.
Keystone (11-10-6) was coming off a 2-
1 win over Winter Park Trinity Prep in the
regional semifinals and that match went
into two scoreless overtime periods be-
fore the Indians out shot Trinity Prep in
a penalty-kicks round.
Friday's match went the same way, but
the Indians were out shot 3-2 in the penal-
ty-kicks round.
"They were fast and I think we were a
little bit tired in the penalty kick round,
which made the shots go off a little bit,"
Keystone head coach Trevor Waters said.
Lake Highland made its first two
penalty kicks, while the Indians misfired
on their first three attempts.
Keystone goalie Michael McLeod did
stop the Highlanders third attempt be-
fore the Indians Branden Waters and
Brad Gober made their shots. That
eveled things up as the Highlanders
fourth attempt, by Clayton Walker, was
high of its intended mark.
The Highlanders Aaron Rasmussen,
however, was true on his attempt, which

gave his tearn the wiin and a berth in the
stale seiiifinals.
"This was a great high school soccer
match," said Waters. "I'm proud of my
boys. I felt like they competed hard."
The two teams played a scoreless first
half. with McLeod thwarting a scoring
opportunity late in the half when he
tipped away a shot and made the save on
the rebound.
Zeroes remained on the scoreboard
until the 50th minute when Keystone's
Dustin Hayre, following a header by Hay-
den Rodel, headed a ball into the right
corner of the net.
The score remained 1-0 in favor of the
Indians until the Highlanders, who got a
"lucky bounce," according to Waters,
scored with less than two minutes re-
maining.
Two scoreless, 10-minute periods fol-
lowed, sending the match into the penal-
ty-kick round.
Though it was a loss, Waters could see
the positive strides made by a young team
that started only two seniors this season.
Keystone lost nine matches during the
regular season, but won the program's
third straight district championship and
advanced to the regional playoffs for the
fourth straight year.
"We're real excited," Waters said. "I feel
we'll be successful next year too."

Panthers lose bid for third


straight district title


By Horace Davis, Staff
hdavis@jcpgroup.com

STARKE - When Ridgeview and Santa Fe
made it to the District 3-4A championship
game, everyone knew this would be a bat-
tle and probably come down to the final
seconds or which team had the ball last.
Both coaches agreed with the assess-
ment prior to the game, "Everyone here
knows this is going to be a good one. They
will force the tempo with their press and
I told my guys don't give it to them, throw
it into the stands if you have to," said
Santa Fe head coach Scott McDaniel.
"Each time we play it comes down to
one possession, we will press and force
tempo that is who we are. They have the
big bodies down low that can cause prob-
lems but we will do what we do. It should
be a great game," said Ridgeview head
coach Rob Feltner.
In the final analysis the team who
made the last run won and that hap-
pened to be the Raiders from Santa Fe
who went on an 8-0 run in the opening
stages of the final quarter to squeak out
a 52-50 win and end the Panthers hopes
of a third straight district title.
Early on it appeared Santa Fe would
cruise to the victory tonight. The)' opened
up a 17-10 lead after one; they used runs of

7-0 and 7-2 to take the initial lead.
However, as they've done so many times
this season, the Panthers scored in a bunch.
After trailing 27-20 at halftime,
Ridgeview went on a 15-1 run that started
with a Joe Everett 3-pointer -and he
scored nine points in the quarter as the
vaunted Ridgeview press paid dividends.
Senior forwardJamal Godette added
a jumper and sophomore guard Evan
Reece drilled a 3-point shot from the cor-

ner and the Panthers took
a 35-33 lead entering the
final period.
As mentioned earlier,
when these teams meet
whoever enjoys the last
run of the game wins and
this time it was the Raiders
from Santa Fe.
Senior center Corey
Vajarska got things started
with a slam-dunk and
guard Steven Shipwash
found an opening in the
middle of the defense for
two driving baskets to put
Santa Fe up 46-42.
In spite of the late Santa
Fe run that put them up
52-50 in the closing sec-
onds Ridgeview still had
three shots to tie the game
or win it but none fell, thus
meaning they would now
go on the road to face Bish-
t over the out- op Kenney in the opening
round of Region 1-4A play
tonight at 7 p.m.
"We had the chance at the end and we
got what we wanted but the shots just did
not fall," said Feltner.
"It is a little disappointing not winning
our third straight district title, it's some-
thing no one in our county has ever seen
before. But I like our chances going on the
road. We have nothing to be ashamed of,
we played hard tonight as we always do
and teams know when we come to play we
are going to play 32 minutes," he added.

ORANGE PARK - The Clay Blue Devils
entered District 5-4A play as the top seed
and in their opening game they played
the Palatka Panthers whom they beat in
overtime in the season-opener but lost in
the rematch.
However, Clay left no doubts this
time as they routed the Panthers 50-32
to move on to the district championship
game against the Port Orange Atlantic
Sharks who opened the season ranked in
the state polls.
Senior forward Damon Pifer led the
Blue Devils with 17 6ihn'ts'a'n'd'seib'orceni-'


ter Blake Elrod scored ten for Clay who
opened up a 15-7 after one but Palatka
closed to 23-19 by halftime.
In spite of Palatka's late run in the sec-
ond quarter the Blue Devils defense
clamped down to outscore the Paithers
27-13 over the final two quarters and
qualify for the playoffs.
But the pendulum swung in the cham-
pionship game as Port Orange drilled 7
three-pointers tojump out to a 32-19 half-
time lead and they never trailed beating
the Blue Devils 57-36.
With the loss (19-7) Clay will now trav-
el south in the Region 2-4A playoffs
tonight to face (21-4) Lecanto High
School at 7 p.m.


Raiders season ends in


dogfight against Buchholz


By Horace Davis, Staff
hdavis@jcpgroup.coum

MANDARIN - The Orange Park Raiders
knew they had a tough battle on their
hands when they opened District 1-6A
play. There opponent in the first round
was the Gainesville Buchholz Bobcats and
although the Raiders had beaten them
earlier in the season Buchholz was without
stud power forward Chris Washington.
The second time around Washington
played and he torched the Raiders for 33
points leading them to a twenty-point win, so
Raider head coach Darrell Lauderdale
knew he had to come up with an answer on
howto stop Washington.
The answer never came as the Bobcat
power forward scored 24 points to lead
his team into the district championship,
securing a berth in the regional playoffs.
"They are an excellent team and I'm
proud of how our team hung in there
with them, but that Washington kid is an
unbelievable player. I tell you it was not
from a lack of defense, he is a division
one prospect," said Lauderdale.
Washington scored Buchholz's open-
ing six points, however, the Raiders
outscored them 15-8 behind three-point-
ers by Mark Marlar and Mike Harris.
Senior center Sencoa Crawford added
six points in the opening quarter to off-
set the Buchholz forward and the Raiders
seemed to be cruising.
But momentum changed in the sec-
ond quarter as Washington scored 8 in
the quarter and guard Blake Hyden's 3-
pointer capped a 9-2 run to give the Bob-
cats a 23-21 lead but Raider guard Moses
McCauley came off the bench to drill a 3-
pointer from the corner as the half
ended and Orange Park escaped with a
24-23 lead at the half.
Although Washington only scored two
points in the third quarter, Hyden
stepped up to drill two more 3-pointers
while the Raiders offense went cold. They
were outscored 12-8 in the quarter and
trailed entering the final quarter of play.
"We had a couple of bad decisions and
costly turnovers during stretches of the
game, I think we did a better job on the
Washington kid during that quarter but
if you put a prospect like that on any team
it makes them that much better. Kids step


up and start making shots they may not
otherwise," added Lauderdale.
In spite of falling behind by as many as
six points during the fourth, the Raiders
still had a chance to extend the game into
overtime or win in the final seconds.
After Buchholz went on a 7-0 run,
Lauderdale called timeout and the
Raiders responded.
Point guard Jerome Clyburn stole the

..4", -... i, ". 1


ball and had two driving baskets, Crawford
scored four points down the stretch, one off
a lob pass from Marlar and DariusJenkins
drilled a ten-footer to cut the lead to 41-40.
However, that kid Washington again
scored on an 8-foot jumper and added
eight points in the quarter to seal the
Raiders fate.
"In spite of the loss I am very happy
with these guys, they exceeded my ex-
pectations and have nothing to hang
their heads about. We were winners of
the west conference and won many
games some thought we would not. This
has been a very enjoyable season and I
would not trade it for anything," said
Lauderdale.

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS - The Keystone ,'I
Heights Lady Indians made short work
of the Dixie County Lady Bears in the
first round of the Class 3A state playoffs.
Seniors Karlyn Reddish and Jessica
Whitfield led the way with 19 and 15
points respectively as Keystone
outscored Dixie sixteen to four in a the
decisive quarter.
After playing a relatively close first (
quarter that ended with the teams tied at
seven, Reddish and Whitfield combined
for eight points during a 9-0 run by the
Lady Indians.
"We started a little slow this evening,"
said Keystone first year head coachJessi- .
ca Marquart.
"But once we found a groove it was
nice,Jessica and Karlyn are the leaders
and they led the way, however, this was a
total team effort that started on the de-
fensive end," she added.
On the defensive end is right and Red-
dish had her hand in that too. She had
five steals in the game and on consecu-

Chris Simpkins signed with the United
States Military Academy at WestPoint.
Webber's recruiting coordinator saw
Gilbert, who-was a three-year starter for
Ridgeview during the Shrine Bowl last
month and they sought him out.
"They saw Charles big-game capabil-
ity and that's all they needed, we did not
have to send any tapes, they knew they
wanted him," head coach Tom Macpher-
son told the throng of students who gath-
ered in Ridgeview's Media Center to
witness the signing.
"If you play the game the way it's sup-
pose to be played and do what the coach-
es ask of you, someone will find you. It
doesn't matter if your playing football,
baseball, softball or any other sport,
someone will find you," he added.
Gilbert who played wide receiver over
the past three years, ended his football ca-
reer with 130 catches, over 2400 yards and 18
touchdowns said, "I am very excited about
the opportunity and looking forward to

season and the race back to the playoffs
after a five-year layoff.
"Gilbert broke the school record for
receiving yards in that game, he had 234
yards with 6 catches and 3 touchdowns,
that's just the kind of player he is, I tell you
he is a threat from anywhere on the
field," added Macpherson.
"That game was fun", said Gilbert. "I
remember fourth and ten and we need-
ed the first down to keep
* I the game alive and I
- nq caught the pass, then fol-
A - lowed that with a touch-
down catch. That was
fim," added Gilbert.
Also in attendance
were Gilbert's parents
Charles Sr. and Delores
and both are very excited
for Charles but happier
that he will be close to
home.
Mr. Gilbert who began
the signing with a prayer
and thanked God for
d by his coach tremendous blessing of
WestPoint. their son said, "I can re-
member him playing flag
football to Pop Warner and then here, I
always knew lie had the ability and look
forward to seeing him play at the next
level. I truly thank God for this."
Meanwhile, shortstop Chris Simpkins
signed a day earlier to join the U.S. Mili-
tary Academy at WestPoint said, "This is
truly a dream come true."
Simpkins who has been a three-year
starter for Coach Bob Adamson and is
preparing for his final season said, "My
dad taught me everything I know about
baseball and I thank him."
Adamson has reaped the rewards of
having a player like Simpkins on his team,
"He is soknowledgeable of the game, a stu-
dent of the game," said Adamson.
Chris is one of the best all-around play-
ers I ever had and more than that one of the
best kids too. It's like having another coach
on the field, anywhere I've played him he
was successful," he added.
Simpkins will end his career with a
batting average of over.300 and Adam-
son said "look for him to bat in the
cleanup spot this year."
"One thing to know about Chris is that
he does so many things that does not show
in the scorebook, he is a great leader and
will have a great career with the Army,
even beyond baseball," added Adamson.

Bassmaster Classic to Take Place in Kissimmee


The world
championship
of professional
bass fishing, the
36th annual
Bassmaster
I Classic, will be
contested inl
Kissimmee, FL.
on Feb 24-26.
The winner will
Vance McCullough cash a check for
$500,000, but in-
i laying creased future
endorsements,
hooky sponsorships,
and speaking en-
gagements will
with put an estimated
$1,000,000 into
V wthe pocket of the
a n ce champ.
In the shad-
ows of Disney
World, West Lake Toho.will be the host
waters. With a history of turning out
giant bass, the crown jewel of Central
Florida could produce a new record for
heaviest winning weight at the Classic.
Palatka bass pro Terry Scroggins is ex-
cited at the opportunity to carry a huge
sack of fish across the stage in front of
tens of thousands 'of enthusiastic bass
fans. "It would be awesome to win,"
laughed Scroggins, "I hope it happens,
but you never know."
Bassmaster magazine recently pointed
to Scroggins as one of the heaviest pre-
Classic favorites in the 35-year history of
the event. His peers, as well as observers of
the sport, expect him to do well because of


his track record in recent seasons - but he
also has a strong advantage in that he has
spent a lot of time on Lake Toho.
Scroggins is handling the glare of bass
fishing's brightest spotlight with a calm
confidence born of past success,
"They've got me favored to win, but I
don't really feel any particular pressure.
You have to approach it like any other
tournament. I've been favored a couple
of other times and I won both of those
tournaments here in Florida."
All the same, he knows what a victory
would mean. "It would sky rocket my ca-
reer. I've been fishing well. To back that
up with a win at the Classic would help
tremendously."
If he wins the $500,000 top prize,
Scroggins won't have much time to re-
flect on how to spend it. "That next Mon-
day I'll be in Texas for a tournament on
Lake Sam Rayburn, then we fish Lake
Amistad, and then back to Rayburn
again. For three or four weeks I'll be
busy traveling and fishing," chuckled
the affable Scroggins.
Preston Clark, also of Palatka, is the
only other Florida angler competing in
Classic XXXVI. Clark and Scroggins have
dominated local two-angler-team tourna-
ments on the StJohns River for years and
remain good friends, though they haven't
worked together or shared information
regarding the up-coming tournament.
Scroggins said of Clark, "I haven't re-
ally talked to Preston much about it late-
ly. It's a winner-take-all deal and I'm
shooting for a win. He knows what to do
there. He'll do well."
Clark echoed Scroggins' statement, "We
talk just about every day and when we go


out of state we share information and help
each other, but here in Florida it's every
man for himself and we both understand
that. We've both fished these waters all of
our lives and we know what to do."
While they will compete intensely
against the entire field, their rivalry is a
friendly one. "If one of us wins, the other
will probably buy him a steak dinner after-
wards," said Clark. "We've always had little
side bets like that and it seems like we fish
harder to win that than to win first place."
On winning the championship Clark
shared, "I've let myself imagine that -
being the last man standing up there on
that stage - I'm pretty excited about it. I
will have a lot of friends and family
there." He feels more supported than
pressured by those close to him. "If some
guys bring in big weights and I don't have
much, I think everybody realizes the level
of competition I'm up against. These are
the best in the world."
He likes his chances. "I have some confi-
dence. I've fished the area since I was a
child. My dad used to drag me down there."
Both anglers qualified for last season's
Classic in Pittsburgh and Clark believes
that experience helped prepare him for
this event. "I did alrigt in Pittsburgh. My
goal was to catch one fish so I could get on
the stage. I caught a limit in the first 15
minutes of Day 1, so I was happy. I know
what to expect how."
What he expects are meetings with tour-
nament officials at 3:45 AM and late nights
including dinner parties to which anglers
are shuttled as group. It doesn't leave much
- time for rest or preparation for the next day.
Qualifying for the Classic is difficult.
Many of the world's top anglers will be

River in 2001.
watching from the sidelines. Clark is thank-
ful to be in the game. "It's really been a mir-
acle. Thejourney has been full of close calls.
So many of the qualifying events were situ-
ations where if I had caught one less fish I
wouldn't have made it."
Is there any magic left? If he pulls off
a win this time, what would it mean? "It
means your career is made. Guys have
won the Classic and rode it for 20 years.
They never had to win another tourna-
ment. My wife and I could pay off all of
our bills. We're breaking ground on a new
house and we just found out she's preg-
nant with our second child. We could pay
for the house and the kids' college fund."
This is the chance of a lifetime. No
pressure, though. Clark put it all into per-
spective. "I've come to understand that
the size of the prize doesn't matter - you
still have to put the fish in the boat to win.
Besides, no matter how big the. paycheck,
when your wife will only give you $20 of
it, how nervous can you really get?"

Abundance of products reduce home-maintenance hassles


Special to Clay Today

(MS) - Hectic schedules, long work hours
and business travel leave little time for
homeowners to keep up with the regular
maintenance needed to care for a home.
During the past several decades an
abundance of products have been intro-
duced that are designed to reduce the has-
sles and time-consuming efforts needed to
keep a home in top shape.
"The evolution of low maintenance
products is one of the greatest achieve-
ments in the building products industry,"
said Don Zeman, host of the home im-
provement radio show, Homefront with
Don Zeman.
"From the introduction of vinyl win-
dow frames that never need painting to
porch rail systems that don't rot, decay or
attract termites, everyone wins with low
maintenance products," says Zeman, who
was a contractor and builder for 25 years
before starting his nationally syndicated,
show. "Homeowners find that the labor
and money saved with low maintenance
products allow them more free time to
enjoy their homes."
According to a survey of customer pref-
erences conducted by the National Asso-
ciation of Home Builders, low
maintenance figures prominently into
building product purchase decisions. In
the report What 21st Century Home Buy-
ers Want, low maintenance ranked as the
second-highest reason for selecting wall
materials for the front exterior of the
home and the primary reason for choos-
ing wall materials for the other three sides
of the home. In the survey, low mainte-
nance brick and vinyl sidings were the
most requested choices for siding.
"Two key things have occurred that
make homeowners more conscious of low
maintenance materials," says Zeman,

whose News from the Homefront television
segments are seen nationwide. "First, the
quality and variety of products in this cate-
gory continue to increase each year. Second,
the free time homeowners have available-to
spend on home maintenance continues to
decrease so they're constantly seeking out
ways to create an easy-care home."
From his vantage point of reviewing
thousands of products each year, Zeman
offers 10 ways homeowners can make
their homes easier to maintain.
Project 1 - Accessorize the exterior of
your home with durable urethane products.
Easy-care shutters, window and door trim
pieces; louvers and balustrade systems re-
sist warping, weather damage and insect
infestations. Products from Fypon, like their
Cellular PVC bead boards that can be used
for porch ceilings, are longer-lasting than
wood products because they don't absorb
moisture and are weather resistant.
Project 2 - Tired of termites feeding
on your deck? Try composite decking.
Made from plastic and wood fibers, this
low maintenance product installs and cuts
like wood, but resists rot and insects.
There's no painting or staining required
and in many cases fasteners are hidden.
The investment in composite decking
pays back during the resale of a home
and during all those weekends you're not
forced to strip and reseal a wood deck.
Project 3 - When it's time to reside
your home, invest in vinyl siding with in-
sulator boards behind them to create the
most energy efficient and low mainte-
nance exterior possible. According to the
Vinyl Siding Institute, there are a wide va-
riety of vinyl siding textures and colors
available, including woodgrain replica-
tions. Visit www.vinylsiding.org to locate
certified vinyl siding products and for an-
swers to your questions on vinyl siding.
Project 4 - Forget about hanging
shades or blinds in areas of the home
where you desire privacy. Instead, install
obscure acrylic block windows that guar-
antee privacy. Both the blocks and vinyl
frames are easy to maintain with mild
soap and water. Acrylic block windows
from Hy-Lite Products come in operable
casement and awning styles along with
large, fixed picture windows ideal for use
in the bathroom.
Project 5 - When ordering windows
for your home, request the tilt-in sash op-
tion. This feature eliminates the need to

quires minimal maintenance.


clean the outside of your windows by
standing on a ladder because you can use
the tilt-in feature to quickly and easily clean
the glass from the inside of the house.
Project 6 - Add decorative style and
maintenance ease to your home with
fiberglass columns. Available in both
round and square profiles, the columns
are insect, weather and decay resistant so
they can be used both for interior and ex-
terior applications. Versatile and elegant,
columns from Dixie-Pacific are load-bear-
ing and can be accented with decorative
capitals and bases.
Project 7 - Install moisture resistant
urethane mouldings and decorative mill-
work in extremely humid areas of the
home, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
No matter how much steam is produced
from showers or cooking, these products
won't warp like wood mouldings.
Project 8 - Replace existing windows
with low-maintenance vinyl framed win-
dows. Easy to clean with mild detergent
and water, windows with vinyl frames,
such as those from Simonton Windows,
never have peeling paint that needs to be


stripped and replaced. As a bonus, vinyl
is an excellent insulator, so vinyl-framed
windows are extremely energy efficient.
Project 9 - Invest in a solid-surface
countertop for your kitchen. This man-
made material can have the look and feel
of stone or marble while offering the ad-
vantage of needing only soap and water for
cleanup. Most solid-surface countertops
are seamless and resist stains, chemicals
and scratches. Color and style options are
almost limitless and there are no veneers
to chip, crack, peel or wear out.
Project 10 - Save time and effort
every time you shower by installing an
acrylic block shower surround. The
easy-care blocks don't require you to
squeegee them after every shower to re-
main clean and attractive. As an added
benefit, the obscure blocks provide pri-
vacy in the shower while adding a styl-
ish look to the bathroom.

home more comfortable, along with infor-
mation on products discussed here, visit

Webster's definition of progress




must include Clay County 2006


By Greg Walsh, Managing Editor
gwalsh@jcpgroup.com

Clay County, you are booming!
If you haven't noticed, there are signs of
growth and yes, progress, everywhere in
Clay County. From the county's primary hos-
pital, to big box retail outlets, to hundreds of
rooftops on new homes, Clay County is
breaking out with new developments.
This is like Sutter's Mill in 1848 - it seems
like the whole nation is heading our way!
And why not? We have great weather;
plenty of entertainment and family activities;
excellent schools; and, most importantly, de-
velopable land to build on.
Someone looking for a joke about it might
say: Look up the word "progress" in the dic-
tionary and you would find a picture of Clay
County, Fla.
Whether you agree with the county's
rapid growth or not, progress is enveloping
our 601-square-mile, Northeast Florida
county; so much so that the second biggest
employer is the construction trade.
While some retail businesses may come
and go, there's no dismissing the fact there
is are expendable dollars are out there and
more retailers are coming here to take ad-
vantage of it.
Just a quick look around finds:
* Fleming Island popping with restau-
rants, retail and commercial space, and
much more on the way.
* Argyle's Oakleaf Plantation literally ex-
ploding with growth on both sides of Branan
Field-Chafee Road. A new school opened in

New home construction and retail growth in Clay County is leading an economic boom that
isn't showing any signs of letting up.


2006 and more are coming to the county in
the near future.
* Developers are planning a 480,0000-
square-foot, open air mall with several large
anchor stores, smaller retails and restaurants
along Old Jennings Road at Branan Field Road.
* Orange Park Mall, built in 1970, is plan-
ning to undergo a major overhaul beginning
in about a year, with a new store is being
added and three existing stores adding sec-
ond-floor expansions.
* At least two new motels coming to the
1-295 and U.S. 17 area, including a new Hol-
iday Inn.
* Wal-Mart, already building its second


supercenter in the county at Blanding Boule-
vard and Branan Field, plans to replace its
existing Orange Park store with a third su-
percenter.
* Home Depot is adding a third store, too;
this one across the street from the second
Wal-Mart Supercenter.
* Residential growth that is staggering. Not
only are existing subdivisions like Fleming Is-
land and Eagle Harbor continuing to build, but
their smaller cousins as well. Big develop-
ments are planned at the intersection of State
Road 21 and 16, and just west of Green Cove
Springs just south of State Road 16.
* Even Keystone Heights, once consid-


ered so far away it was nearly forgotten, is
beginning to see the waves of growth.
And those are the obvious ones!
Who knows how many businesses are
expanding to meet growing demands or
have plans to add bigger showrooms, more
merchandise and hire more workers.
Clay County planners say they've been
contacted by developers for even more
rooftops in several other areas of the county.
Sure there are growing pains. Clay Coun-
ty roads are not able to handle all the new-
comers, leaving U.S. 17 and Blanding
Boulevard bumper-to-bumper during prime
commuting hours on weekdays.
Property values are skyrocketing, which
makes it nice for the current owners, but
tough on young families and people trans-
ferring here to find affordable housing.
Schools are bulging with new students.
Even new schools, built on project numbers,
immediately have to add portables because
there isn't enough classroom space.
But this is the Progress edition. In this
forum at least, there are no problems that
can't be solved.
Further inside this edition you will find
stories about some of Clay County's biggest
growth areas: Argyle, Lake Asbury, Middle-
burg, Keystone Heights, Fleming Island and
Green Cove Springs.
We at Clay Today are excited about the
great opportunities this wave of change is
bringing to our county. And we hope these
stories will give you some insight into
what's happened so far and what may be
yet to come.


Chamber's economic development official


addresses rapid growth in Clay County


(Editor's note: Clay Today asked
the Clay County Chamber of Com-
merce a series of questions about
the county's progress. Matt Welch,
chairman of the chamber's eco-
nomic development division, wrote
the following responses.)

1. Everyone can see Clay
County is experiencing tremen-
dous residential and commercial
growth. Do you feel it's planned
growth, though?
We would like to see more balance
between business and residential growth. The
chamber's goal is to attract more higher skill,
higher wage jobs to diversify the economic
base of the county.
There is a specific need for additional em-
ployment centers with readily available light
industrial and class "A" office space in the
50,000 square foot ranges & higher which
could help to reverse the high out-migration of
our workforce.
2. The chamber has made it clear it
wants industrial growth, too. What
kinds of industries would be most fa-
vorable? Why?
We want to raise wage levels in the com-
munity by attracting primary industries. In
other words, these companies are classified as
contributory or sell their product or service out-
side the region. Therefore we target industries
that import wealth back to the community.
The target industry list begins at the state
level for incentive purposes and analyzed on
the regional level. Further refining on the local
level pinpoints companies that both closely
match the skilled workforce available within
Clay County and that closely fit the geographic
attributes of our community. We believe these
companies have a higher potential to grow. Ex-
amples include structural metals and fabricat-
ed metal products, equipment and electronic


components, pharmaceuticals
and medicine, aviation and
aerospace products and parts
knowledge based industries -
like data processing and related
services, finance and insurance
. '. services, computer systems de-
sign, scientific research and de-
velopment, and company
headquarters special groups -
like testing laboratories and sci-
entific research and electric
Matt Welch power generation.
3. What kind of role
does agriculture play in Clay County's
future as rooftops spring up on what
used to be agricultural lands?
This statewide issue needs to be addressed
on the state and local levels. With more than
1,000 people moving to Florida daily, the de-
mand for residential growth is overwhelming.
Developers are meeting that need; however,
as a community we must balance all cate-
gories of land uses. In addition, we need to do
a better job of redevelopment where we have
existing infrastructure.
4. More people coming to Clay
County means more cars on already
saturated roads. What can the cham-
ber do to help alleviate what is already
a significant problem?
The chamber is beginning implementation
of the countywide strategic plan for economic
development and will work closely with coun-
ty and municipal leaders on transportation is-
sues. The strategic plan stresses the
importance of the outer beltway to improve
transportation connectivity with the existing
network to help bring higher wage, higher
skilled jobs into the county. These jobs would
definitely reverse the commute pattern and al-
leviate some of our heaviest congested areas.
5. How would a second hospital ben-
efit economic development efforts in


Clay County?
Another hospital would fulfill a need with-
in the community for medical care. Addition-
ally, it would bring higher wage, higher skilled
jobs to the county.
6. Are you finding the majority of de-
velopers working in Clay County are re-
sponsible companies that don't put
profits ahead of community interest?
Developers are required to comply with
growth management and planning regulations
set forth by the county and state. It has been
our experience the majority has been respon-
sible and has had a positive impact. For ex-
ample, the major Developments of Regional
Impact (DRI) such as Eagle Harbor, Fleming Is-
land Plantation and OakLeaf Plantation all
added community amenities and made im-
provements in transportation, extension of
water/sewer, telecommunications infrastruc-
ture, etc. as part of their DRI agreements. With
the new growth management legislation all
developers will be sharing the costs of future
development.
7. How is fundraising for the cham-
ber's five-year growth plan going?
The capital campaign has exceeded expec-
tations. Sixty-seven companies have donated
more than $1.42 million to help implement the
countywide strategic plan for economic devel-
opment over the next five years.
8. What's the chamber's position on
the proposed Outer Beltway?
The Chamber has just taken a position on
the modified pink/brown route to provide
relief from traffic congestion, promote com-
munity connectivity and regional economic
growth, increase the local tax base and
stimulate the creation of higher skill, higher
wage jobs.
9. Do you see any similarities in
what's happening in Northeast Florida
and what happened to Atlanta starting
about 25 years ago? There seems to be


general agreement Atlanta's growth is
something to avoid.
There are similarities in both cases with
communities growing at a fast pace. The key
is promoting balance within the region for res-
idential and business growth, which is why the
countywide strategic plan for economic devel-
opment is so important. The difference is that
Florida first implemented growth management
legislation in 1985 and is taking a more ag-
gressive approach to balance growth with fis-
cal responsibility and resources with this latest
growth management legislation.
10. Looking at the economic climate
from a regional standpoint, how is Clay
County situated as we proceed into the
new year and beyond?
The Chamber of Commerce is committed to
improving the economic climate of Clay Coun-
ty. We are partnering with the regional Corner-
stone economic development initiative to
market northeast Florida on a national and
global level for business attraction. Through the
countywide strategic plan we are addressing
the opportunities to create job centers within
the community and address infrastructure
needs to improve the economic climate of Clay
County. We must continue to support our edu-
cation system and its ties to workforce devel-
opment, such as our Higher Education Alliance
task force that is helping to address the work-
force needs of the companies currently in Clay
County and to look at the skills that will be
needed in the future.

There is tremendous opportunity to work
together strategically as a region to grow
quality jobs, expand the tax base, and im-
prove the quality of life for all our citizens
and future generations in the process. Im-
plementation of the countywide strategic
plan will specifically provide a stronger
foundation and additional opportunities for
long-term benefits.

School Board explains


school site selection


process and reasoning


(Editor's note: The Clay County
school system recently released the fol-
lowing information about how the board
decides locations for new schools.)

Why does Clay County need more
new schools?
Because of Clay County's tremendous
growth and the state requirement to reduce
class size, the school district must build new
schools and continue to renovate existing
school facilities. The difference between our
available capacity and enrollment is steadily
increasing. Over the past five years, Clay
County has grown by 5,366 students. This
past year alone, the district had a 6 percent
increase over the previous year. Today, we
have 34,100 students in 34 schools.
How does the district decide where
to build new schools?
New schools are located based on avail-
ability of land, growth trends, existing enroll-


How hard is it to find land in Clay
County?
As more and more land is developed
within our county, available tracts for
schools are harder to find and secure.
Many land owners see a higher return for
their property if it is developed for houses.
The soaring price of real estate is also forc-
ing the district to use more of its limited
funds for land acquisition. The school dis-
trict tries to purchase property for new
schools well in advance of need to mini-
mize the costs, but is often limited to what
it can afford and when it has the funding
available to purchase the property. Large
developments are targeted early on to set
aside property for new schools and are
pressed to donate the property.
Why are boundary changes necessary?
School boundaries must change to pop-
ulate new schools and to alleviate over-
crowding at existing campuses. Florida's
Department of Education requires all dis-

propertyfor new schools well in advance
of need to minimize the costs, but is often

ment characteristics and new development.
District personnel also update student demo-
graphic data on a constant basis and coordi-
nates new school needs and locations with
local and state governmental agencies.
What is the funding process for
building a new school?
To build new schools, the district borrows
funds through the sale of bonds, known as
Certificates of Participation. The bonds are
then repaid with interest over a 20- to 25-
year period using a variety of funding
sources, including Impact Fees, local 2 mill
funds, and state funds for Capital Outlay.
Many people ask... Why does Clay
County have so many portable
classrooms? Why not just build
a bigger school?
In simple terms, it comes down to money.
Relocatable classrooms cost less than per-
manent classrooms and relocatables can be
brought on line faster. With our growing stu-
dent population, the district does not have
the resources to build larger schools and 100
percent permanent classrooms.
Why are school construction costs
going up?
The adage that "time is money" is certain-
ly true. Construction costs typically increase
4 percent each year and certain products,
such as steel, have spiked costs even more.
Events, such as hurricanes on the Gulf Coast,

count for its capacity before new schools
are recommended. The process of valida-
tion is known as the Florida School Plant
Survey. This process verifies all existing ca-
pacity and compares this capacity to a five-
year student projection. When the student
projection exceeds the student capacity,
new schools are recommended. Redistrict-
ing is considered the responsibility of the
school district and, therefore, not a factor in
the state process for determining the need
for new schools.
When a boundary change is neces-
sary, what factors are considered?
Managing enrollment growth is the pri-
mary concern. Therefore, the district must
look at campus growth projections, capacity,
feeder patterns, community integrity, geo-
graphic proximity, program accommoda-
tions, student needs and cost effectiveness.
Does school construction foster
academic achievement?
Design does in fact have an effect on stu-
dent achievement and student behavior.
From the width of the corridors to the depth
of classroom sinks, the smallest detail is
viewed as a way to foster academic advan-
tage. Studies show that students do better in
schools where they hear well, see well and
are not packed in tight spaces. Noise, light,
air quality, and cold and heat have all been
found to influence academic achievement
and student behavior.


Representatives speak out

regarding Clay County growth


By Bob Henderson, Staff
bhenderson@jcpgroup.com

CLAY COUNTY - Clay County is experiencing
a growth rate of adolescent magnitude. Like
an adolescent, it is outgrowing much of what
is needed - roads, schools, water and sewer,
parks and recreation. Clay County, in short, is
one of the fastest growing counties in the na-
tion and growth comes with its own concerns.
Recently Representatives Jennifer Carroll
and Dick Kravitz spoke out regarding growth
in Clay County.
Jennifer Carroll:
"County leadership needs to look ahead
20 years or so and plan for how the county
will look then.
"Public input is beginning to provide what
county leadership has lacked in the past. We
need honest dialogue in regard to how we
will pay for growth and what we are willing
to commit to paying for it. Matching funds are
available from the state - not just for road-
ways, but infrastructure, transportation and
so on. What kind of leverage can we provide
to attract these matching funds?
"We must look at condemnation and plan
for future growth. Look ahead so that when
the need for infrastructure arises it won't cost
so much.
"I applaud the citizens that are getting in-
volved and I hope they stay involved. We need
to avoid personal wants and enable us to
move forward in a clear objective manner."
Dick Kravitz:
"The state can probably help Clay out, as
well as some other counties, by allowing
some of the rules and regulations, especially
dealing with transportation and education, to
be handled at the regional and/or local level.
"Specifically, educational plans need to be
de-centralized and more input from the

county needs to be accepted by the Depart-
ment of Education.
"The same holds true for the Department
of Transportation (DOT), although the Re-
gional Municipal Planning Organization is
making real progress in working with the DOT
on regional transportation issues that affect
Clay as well as other medium sized counties.
"I am a major proponent of local control
of education issues and regional control of
transportation issues and will work hard to
see if we can bring that about."

Keystone booms as rest of county grows


By Trisha Cormeny, Staff
tcormeny@jcpgroup.com

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS - Mayor Lyndel Hale
has seen a lot of growth in his small little
town over the past two years.
From a new sewer system to a second
stoplight, Hale says his "forgotten city" is
quickly making its mark on the county maps.
'The roads seem to get busier and busier,"
said Hale. "Keystone's growing. People want
to live in the smaller communities."
Evidence of that growth can be found at the
intersection of Commercial Ave. and SR 100
where the city just installed a new stoplight.
"There's just lots of things for people to do
down here," said Hale. "Keystone's been a
big secret for a long time. It's just a quiet lit-
tle town."
This "quiet little town" is in the midst of
change, says Hale, thanks to a new $3-4 mil-
lion sewer system being installed within the
city limits.
"So far we're in budget and it's looking
like it's going to be a good project," said Hale
about the system slated to be finished March
1. "We're going to start getting more busi-
nesses now because of the sewer system.
It's going to definitely open up some oppor-
tunities for us."
In phase one of a two-phase project, Hale
hopes to begin getting residences on the new
sewer system by the end of this year. Taking
advantage of the new system, CVS Pharmacy
opened its doors last year on the comer of SR
100 and SR21 and competitor Walgreens is

setting up shop across the street.
"Florida is one of our biggest markets,"
said Carol Hively, Corporate Spokesperson
for Walgreens, about the 14,800 square foot
building scheduled to open in March with 25
local employees. "We're not just opening
stores to meet the current demand, but we're
also looking ahead to future demand."
Another new Clay County business look-
ing to the future is Jumpin' Beans and Sec-
ond Hand T's. Owners Darlene and Roby
Dickerson hope to provide an entertaining
atmosphere where teens and adults can
enjoy a hot cup of Jo while listening to fa-
vorite local bands.
"We're going to have coffees from all over
the world," said Darlene about the organic cof-
fee shop slated to open at the end of February.
Jumpin' Beans, set up like an old fash-
ioned shop, is designed to encourage cus-
tomers to spend a lazy afternoon lounging
on one of the many couches listening to local
bands while enjoying cappuccinos, espres-
sos and cha-cha chinos as well as a variety
of desserts.


"We have a lot of kids and adults that play
and we're going to make them known
throughout the community," said Darlene. "I
want people to be able to sit down and enjoy
themselves. We've needed something here
for a long time."
Remember the various water competi-
tions Keystone used to be famous for? Well,
they'll be returning, says Hale. Following six
years of decreasing water, Hale says the
lakes of Keystone are finally returning.
"We're still working on the lakes, getting
the flow back from Alligator Creek," said
Hale. "For the first time in years, we'll have a
wakeboarding competition later this year
and we're going to start the sporting events
up again."
Looking to the future, Hale sees a lot of
growth for this once one-stoplight town.
"I'm really excited about the future of Key-
stone," said Hale. "It could be a little Cyprus
Gardens. Our lakes are the prettiest lakes in
Florida because of the white sand bottoms.
It's a beautiful area down here. I can't wait
until we get another hotel."

Keystone Airport changes with society


By Trisha Cormeny, Staff
tcormeny@jcpgroup.com

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS - Sixty-four years after
its creation, the Keystone Heights Airport is
still very much a part of its community today.
Built in 1942 as Crystal Lake Airfield, the
airpark has seen a lot of changes over the
years. From remodeled buildings to tailored
services, Keystone Airpark has been molded
to fit the ever-changing society is serves.
Completed in December 1942 for $2 mil-
lion, the airport got its start as an army train-
ing facility for 112 officers and 900 enlisted
personnel in the 313th Fighter Squadron. The
2,604 acres housed three active runways,
A20s, P39s and B25s.
In 1947, the City of Keystone Heights
bought the airport and in 1991 created the
Airport Authority to oversee its management.
Today, only two runways remain and in
place of the mess tent and bunkers a strip of
businesses have taken up residence along the
2,505 acre parcel.
"Today, it's the only general aviation air-
port in Clay or Bradford Counties," said Dean
Weaver, spokesperson for the Airport Au-
thority. "We have remodeled and renovated
the FBO building, brought in aviation and jet
fuel for airplanes, and serve several tenants."
Those tenants include helicopter training
school Aquila Aviation LLC, The European
Rally and Performance Driving School, flight
training school Express Air, Redd Team Man-
ufacturing, a division of Alcoa Aluminum,
Keystone Air Sports, Inc, Jim Young Aviation,
and radio control aircraft club Cloud Busters.
Another addition to the airport in recent
years is the newly remodeled FBO building.
"The building back then had absolutely no
glass, no windows, no anything. It was not a
really happy site," said Weaver. Two years
later, a completely gutted building has turned
into a pilot's haven with a lounge, restrooms
that include showers, flight planning area and


. -


.--' :


The European Rally and Performance Driving School is just one of the tenants found at the Keystc


a conference room.
But the updates are just beginning, says
Weaver. Last year, the airport's runways got
a facelift as well with new runway and taxi-
way lights. Another addition is the Automat-
ed Weather Operating Station, where pilots
can call an automated number and get infor-
mation such as barometric pressure, the di-
rection of the wind and the current
temperature.
"A pilot always wants to know what's
ahead of him," said Weaver. "He always
wants to land in the wind. This way, if he's
coming from the south, he can tune into the
station and get his bearings before he comes


upon the airport."
Even though it's more than 60 years old,
the airport is still very much in use, says
Weaver. Flight schools such as Emery-Riddle
periodically hold competitions, the National
Guard and Camp Blanding train on its
grounds and a Sportsman's Club currently
leases a large amount of the property.
"Just last weekend, the National Guard
brought in a C130 and began parachute
jumping. We had quit a few spectators come
out," said Weaver about the facility that sold
more than 110,000 gallons of fuel to 6,824
aircraft last year. "100 percent of what we do
out here gets paid by the airport. The resi-

dents do not pay extra tax dollars."
The future looks bright for Keystone
Heights Airport, says Weaver.
"Currently we are in the process of getting
a land use plan change to develop a business
park to lease land to companies that will pro-
duce jobs for folks in the area," he said. "We
are also planning on building another 40 T-
Hangers and if you want to learn to fly this is
the place."
Keystone Heights Airport is located three
miles northwest of Keystone Heights on SR
100, straddling the Clay and Bradford County
lines. For more information, visit www.key-

Green Cove Springs area bursting at the seams

GREEN COVE SPRINGS - The once sleepy
little city of Green Cove Springs is awaken-

Once known as the Saratoga of the
South at the end of the 19th Century, people


and stretched.
From one end of the city to the other, in-
side the city limits and in the unincorporat-
ed county, the very ground is stirring as
growth feeds on growth and local govern-
ments scurry to meet the challenge. In the
southeast corner of the city, Reynolds Park
is contemplating its own future with many


possibilities on the table.
Closer in, Orange Park Medical Center
has won state approval for a new hospital at
US 17 and SRI 6E. The oversight commit-
tee's decision has been challenged and the
project is on hold waiting resolution.

ange Avenue have been gathered into one

huge AutoMall along US 17 north of the
city. All three of Garber's dealerships, along
with a pre-owned car outlet and a body
shop, now occupy just under 40 acres on
the west side of the highway, leap frogging
Shedd Road in the process. In the mean-
time, the old Garber site is on the block for
potential development as condos and com-
mercial space.
Even the government is participating in
the area's explosive growth. Clay County, it-
self, has a huge expansion underway for its
courthouse. The expansion will add a num-
ber of courtrooms as well as additional ad-
ministrative offices. The structure includes
a 132-foot tower, a height so far surpassing
the city's height restriction it required action
by the Planning and Zoning Board and the
City Council to gain approval.
But two huge projects dwarf the others.
Nestled between CR315 and Magnolia
Point in the northeast comer of Green Cove
Springs, streets are being laid out, water and
sewer going in and models are under con-
struction for the new development of Mag-
nolia West. When built out, Magnolia West
will be home to 535 single-family resi-
dences. Two builders, KB Homes and SEDA
Homes, soon will open models at the pro-
ject's entrance from CR315.
Although not a part of Magnolia Point,
the development has a "membership rela-
tionship" with the point. At the option of the
builders, residents of the non-gated com-
munity may have membership in Magnolia
Point Golf and Country Club.

GREEN COVE from 6
from what is now mostly vacant acreage.
Over the next 15 years, Saratoga Springs
is expected to add 4,300 homes and
thousands of jobs to the Green Cove
Springs area.
The project's name was chosen because,
says LandMar Group COO Roger Postleth-
waite, "Saratoga Springs will spark a revival
of the Green Cove Springs 'grand resort' of


the late 1800s."
LandMar's CEO and President Ed Burr
says, "Saratoga Springs will bring back that
sense of destination that was so vibrant in
Clay County during the late 1800s." Includ-
ed in the master plan are recreation facili-
ties, including a golf course, school sites,
parks and commercial areas.
Plans now call for some 300 homes
to be built in each of the next 15 years.
Saratoga Springs will include single-family


neighborhoods, townhomes, apartments,
condominiums, an age-restricted active
adult community, a golf course communi-
ty and a traditional neighborhood de-
signed village. There even will be a formal
town square.
A development of this magnitude will
have considerable impact on the region's
roadways. To help alleviate the impact,
LandMar plans to four-lane Shedd Road
from US 17 to CR315 and on to CR218. The


company also plans a north-south access
road along the eastern edge of the project.
This is planned to provide a bypass for
Green Cove Springs.
With a project of this magnitude - it is a
Development of Regional Impact (DRI) - ap-
proval must be gained at many levels, coun-
ty, regional and state. At present, LandMar
is working on gaining these approvals but
there are still many hoops to jump through
before the first spade of earth is turned.

Gem of an industrial park thrives



on Green Cove Springs' fringe


By Leo King, Correspondent
GREEN COVE SPRINGS - A green, grassy
gem is helping to bring a healthy economy to
the region and keep people employed.
Many businesses at the gem, Reynolds In-
dustrial Park, are projecting growth and ex-
pansion this year. They range from a small
industrial railroad company to an aircraft
avionics developer.


The history behind Reynolds is quite
unique. At one time, the Reynolds family
owned the property but sold it to the Martins
of Rockville, Va. Today, Glenn R. Martin is the
principal officer and runs the facility along
with three other family members.
Rumors have circulated around Green
Cove Springs for years that someone is
planning some major residential development
there, but that just isn't so, said Ted McGowan,

"I believe there will be a conversion of
the facility to a mixed use community at
some point in the future, but we have no cur-
rent plans to do so," said McGowan. "I have
responded to various residential developers
over the past years with increasing inquiry
lately. This is another indicator that the mar-
ket is improving for such change and it will
continue to do so, but we have long-term

"Reynolds Park is a great facility that pro-
vides much needed space for industry

missioner Christy Fitzgerald. "In addition, the
park already houses many thriving business-
es. They employ many Clay County residents.
I think the possibilities for the future of the

executive director of Clay County Port Inc. and
Reynolds Park and Yacht Center.
"We have no plans for housing...at
Reynolds," McGowan said. "Since I came to
Reynolds in 1998 I have encountered much
speculation about the future of the facility
and responded to numerous rumors that
condos, housing and other concept develop-


commitments on leases, clean up programs,
and a different business strategy than that."
Regarding the airpark, McGowan said the
current owners don't advertise or promote
the park, "because it is nearly always 100
percent occupied, so we don't have to do
much marketing."
McGowan, an advisory council member of


the Clay County Chamber of Commerce, said
the airfield is very active on the 1,700-acre
park zoned for commercial development.
The park's yachting center takes up resi-
dence along three miles of St. Johns River,
which supplies fresh water storage, hurricane
protection and a full "megayacht" service cen-
ter. The center has 30 slips, a marina basin 14-
foot deep and 500 feet wide, the yacht center
boasts slip sizes up to 350 feet long.
Federal Aviation Administration charts
show the Reynolds airfield to be a private air-
port without navigational aids
There are no services at the airport. No
airframe or power plant repairs are available.
Pilots get their weather briefings from the
FAA Flight Service Station in Gainesville.
Pegasus Technologies Inc. is the big gorilla
on the far side of the airfield, at the end of Pilot
Road and adjacent to an apron. An aviation re-
search and development firm as well as and
FAA-cerified repair shop, according to assis-
tant general manager Randy Knotts,
Pegasus deals mostly with avionics - radios,
global positioning systems and other electron-
ic gear - "anything to do with avionics."
They are also dealers for Garmin
International, Inc. of Olathe, Kan., which
makes global positioning systems, and Ryan
International Airlines of Wichita, primarily an
airfreight carrier.
"We're growing, yes, absolutely," said Knotts.
In fact, Pegasus began construction of a
new building "just two years ago, and now
we're putting on the finishing touches." He re-
marked it had taken so long to finish the job
because of a "slow contractor."
After a couple of break-ins, he said, they

New businesses abound on Fleming Island


PROGRESS 2006 9


By Amy Dimmock, Correspondent
Fleming Island experienced another year
of growth in 2005, as office buildings and
restaurants began to pop up around the area.
New businesses opened along the major
roads of US 17 and CR 220 and in other areas
of the island as well.
Residents are no doubt aware of the vari-
ety of new businesses. Those who haven't
been to Fleming Island in a while will be
greeted by Kohl's Department Store, IHOP,
Stalvey's Backyard Barbecue, Venice Pizza
and Maggie Moo's Ice Cream Treatery.
New hair and nail salons opened in sev-
eral Fleming Island areas, and ladies have
another choice for working out with the ad-
dition of Ladies Workout Express. RPM Au-
tomotive arrived, and the area added more
service, medical and dental options.
The plaza west of Home Depot wel-
comed new tenants in 2005, including Pinch-
A-Penny Pool-Patio-Spa, Venice Pizza, Fish
Tails aquarium store and BetterBuy Kitchens
and More.
Both Pet Supplies and North Florida Ob-
stetrical & Gynecological Associates chose
to remain in Fleming Island but moved to
larger locations last year as well.
The area saw a few businesses leave, in-
cluding a jewelry store near Publix and a
seafood restaurant - whose vacated location
next to Walgreens is already filled by La
Nopalera Mexican Restaurant.
The current year promises more growth.
Jon Ric Day Spa says it is coming soon near
Publix.
An Applebees restaurant has been started
on East West Parkway, east of the IHOP, and
a Sonic is being built at the corner of East
West Parkway and Town Center Boulevard.


Next to IHOP communercial condos are nearing
completion. New churches can be seen under
construction throughout Fleming Island.
Though long rumored additions such as
the movie theater and family entertainment
center with bowling alley appear to be mov-
ing forward, completion for 2006, a source
said, will likely be pushed back.
One merely has to drive the remaining
undeveloped commercial areas in Fleming
Island to know this growth will continue for
some time. Virtually every area displays a for
sale, for lease, or coming soon sign.
Fleming Island's development is the result of
many people. Developers have included large,


national corporations but also local people.
One local developer is Middleburg resi-
dent Ken Anderson. Anderson and his part-
ner Kevin McFall, a Fleming Island resident,
currently operate two Sonic restaurants, one
on Hwy 220 in Doctors Inlet and another on
Blanding Boulevard in Orange Park. They
hope to open their third Sonic, located across
from the Fleming Island Post Office, at the
end of this month.
Though the Fleming Island and Doctors
Inlet Sonics won't be separated by many
miles, Anderson believes the amazing growth
of both areas can support two locations.
The partners also opened an IHOP in


2005 and are pleased with how it has done.
"There was a definite need for that type of
breakfast restaurant," said Anderson about
the success of the IHOP restaurant.
Another Fleming Island area experienc-
ing tremendous growth last year was the Vil-
lage Square. Located within Fleming Island
Plantation across from the high school, Vil-
liage Square attracted a variety of new busi-
nesses, including Ivy League Academy, Kief
Photography, Attorney Nancy Kemnar, the
Zeisel-Knapp Group Vanguard Realty/GMAC
Real Estate, The Computer Guy, Advanced

Keeping small town character




tops Orange Park's agenda


By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff
disroelmesser@jcpgroup.com

ORANGE PARK - The boundaries of the town
of Orange Park haven't changed since 1887,
according to Town Manager John Bowles.
Those boundaries are somewhat of a
mystery to those traveling through the town.
While there is an Orange Park Mall, Orange
Park High School, Orange Park Medical Cen-
ter and a multitude of other landmarks one
may think are in Orange Park-they are not.
In fact, the majority of Blanding Boule-
vard is not in the town but in Clay County.
It is the lack of known boundaries, in part,
that prompted the town's council to decide
last year to define Orange Park through a
new signage program.
The council will use a public workshop
process to establish what Orange Park resi-
dents think best represents the town for use
on the signs.
The program includes entrance signs, so
motorists will know when they enter Or-
ange Park.
To compliment the entrance signs, street
and public building signs will mirror the theme.
Recognizing the need to both identify and
enhance the character of the town has led
the council to make improvements at Clarke
Park to help establish a town focal point.
Improvements to Clarke Parke have been
steadily completed over the last few years
from the installation of the playground to en-
hancements made by the Orange Park Gar-
den Club and Orange Park Historical Society.
Last year the town installed three hurri-
cane-proof pavilions to provide shade for
park visitors.
The town has also moved on with
restoration of the Clarke House with an ini-
tial change being the removal of asbestos
siding, restoring it to the original finished
wood siding.
This year will see the installation of a
wrought iron fence along Kingsley Avenue
that will compliment a similar fence at the
front of the town's cemetery directly across
the street.
Unlike the building boom occurring in the
county, development in Orange Park is like-
ly to be in the form of redevelopment of ex-
isting parcels.
One such redevelopment will be the re-
development of the Econo Lodge located
close to U.S. 295.
Last year the town revised the height
restriction near the highway in anticipation
of proposals for motels at three and four
story levels.

Work at the intersection of DeBarry and Gano will be bid out in March. The work will include
paving, sidewalks, lighting and drainage.


The wrought iron fence at the entrance to the Orange Park Cemetery will be used as the
design for the wrought iron fence for Clarke Park across Kingsley Avenue.


The Econo Lodge is one such motel. The.
motel is currently one story but will increase
to 4 stories and boast 99 rooms as well as
conference rooms.
Other properties, prime for redevelop-
ment, have had problems meeting current
zoning requirements. Some parcels are un-
dersized whereas others have existing set-
backs that do not meet current code. One of
those parcels is a parcels sits on U.S. 17 with
an old Taco Bell building.
Both candidates for Orange Park council,
Pete Morgan (the incumbent) and Marge
Hutton have cited the property as one that
may need its planning requirements re-
viewed.


Bowles said he expects a review of the
properties as the town moves forward in
the year.
Two other motels are being considered
for the Wells Road area.
Both motels will be constructed on vacant
property on the south side of the road.

Traffic Impacts
One of the potential impacts on the char-
acter of the town is the increasing traffic gen-
erated by development approved by Clay
County commissioners for properties south
of Orange Park.
Development along U.S. 17 and its inter-
sections with other Clay County roads like CR
220, have taken an increasing toll on the
ability of Orange Park residents to access
U.S. 17.
Because Park Avenue is also U.S. 17, the
Florida Department of Transportation is in
charge of traffic control devices, from the
size of the Black Creek Bridge to signals to


the size of the on-ramp at U.S. 295.
To make the situation more complicated,
the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
controls the amount of traffic that comes
onto U.S. 295
With that in mind Bowles, and the coun-
cil, have been working with those agencies
to find ways to lessen the additional traffic's
impact on Orange Park.
Those efforts are beginning to bear fruit.
Last week, at the county's Transportation
Advisory Committee meeting (TAC), FDOT
staff announced they would pursue an addi-
tional lane on U.S. 17 dedicated to traffic
going onto U.S. 295 and heading north.
Currently traffic going onto U.S. 295, both
north and south, crowd into one lane, with
many cars "jumping over into the lane at the
last minute".
FDOT staff said they believe addition of
the lane will allow the northbound traffic to
move out of the three travel lanes on U.S. 17
helping traffic flow more smoothly.
Bowles said however the lane is not in-
cluded in the five-year plan adopted by the
Municipal Planning Organization.
Bowles said he would attend the MPO
meeting in March in an attempt to convince
the MPO board the lane will assist in meet-
ing an important regional need beyond the
immediate impact on Orange Park.
Other changes affecting travel on U.S. 17
are expected to begin this year with the ad-
vent of improved signal controls. Recent im-
provements in the length of fiber optic cable
along the road will assist the town and FDOT
in providing Intelligent Traffic Service to the
roadway, eventually controlling traffic from
1-295 to Green Cove Springs.
The fixed traffic controls now in place can-
not respond to changing traffic conditions.
The new system will allow the county and
Orange Park to monitor traffic conditions
and adjust signal timing to increase traffic
flow as needed.
Within Orange Park, there are more than
$1.5 million in improvements being bid out
over the next two months with construction
starting this year.
One of the long awaited changes will be
in the intersection of Gano Street and De-
Barry Avenue.
A new opportunity for the town arose
when property at the comer of Doctor's Inlet
and Kingsley Avenue became vacant.
The intersection has been a challenge for
the town due to the frequency of traffic and
the off-center intersection. Add in the pres-
ence of the railroad tracks and the complex
nature of the intersection is multiplied.
Town officials will be looking at recon-
struction of the intersection to make turning
motions easier.
The town council will be spending a year
filled with improvements designed to make
Orange Park easier to live in while maintain-
ing the character residents enjoy.

Proof of Middleburg growth




comes in one name: Wal-Mart


By Greg Walsh, Managing Editor
gwalsh@jcpgroup.com

MIDDLEBURG - It's noon at Duke's Famous
B-B-Q near Lake Asbury and members of
the Middleburg Business Association are
straggling in for their weekly feast of beef or
pulled pork.
But there's another feast going on all
around them. And it's leaving just as good a
taste in their mouths as anything on the menu.
Middleburg is growing in every sense of
the word. New businesses are coming faster
than ever, rooftops are shooting up in Clay
County's center like dandelions and there's
an overall sense that progress is on the move.
"It appears where Middleburg was once
a small spit of town south of Orange Park,
it's getting its own identity," said Lee Sack-
ett, business association president. Sackett
is himself an example of the growth. A
North Carolina native, he moved to the area
three years ago and runs a direct marketing
firm from his home south of Middleburg.
He joined the chamber to help make
business connections and last fall became
the president of the association, which is
connected to the Clay County Chamber of
Commerce.
Just in the past four or five months he's
seen a jump in people attending association
meetings and a 50 percent increase in mem-
bers since he joined in 2003.
When it comes to growth in Middleburg,
the driving force is definitely at Blanding
Boulevard and Branan Field Road. That's
where a new Wal-Mart Supercenter is being
built on the south side and a Home Depot
with adjoining shopping center is going up
on the north.
And more growth is coming very soon.
In mid January plans were announced for a
$70 million, 480,000-square-foot commer-
cial development called Avery Village at Old
Jennings Road and Branan Field. And, ac-
cording to county planning officials, that en-
tire area along Branan Field and Old
Jennings is slated for commercial growth in
coming years.
Sackett, who watched the same kind of
growth when the Raleigh area reached into
the tiny hamlet of Chapel Hill, said the
Branan Field area is proof of Middleburg's
ascension as a commercial and retail
growth location.
"As growth starts, the Home Depots and
the Wal-Marts come in. When you have big
boxes, then you have the others that follow,"
said Sackett, 43. "There's a synergy that starts
to occur. It's exciting to see the starts of that."
Owners of businesses along what was
once a lonely stretch of Blanding Boulevard
know there's going to be a positive spinoff.
Ginger Bianco, co-owner of A- 1 Tools and
Fastners, said the company leased its loca-
tion before buying the property a year ago.
"We're really excited," Bianco said.
The business, which sells new and re-
conditioned tools as well as nail fasteners to
builders and roofing contractors, was al-
ready doing a brisk business before the
work began on the Home Depot and Wal-
Mart sites.
"We just added the fasteners to our busi-
ness last April and it's been great," she said.
An Italian immigrant, her husband
moved to Middleburg 15 years ago.
"He got here when it was still rural and
secluded and just loved the area. But it's not
that way any more," she said, "and we're
okay with that."
For Lynn Gerlach, who runs a business
from her Middleburg home, Wal-Mart is all
the proof she needs that the area is booming.
"The fact that we're getting a Wal-Mart
pretty much says everything, doesn't it?,"
she said.


Some residents, especially those living in
Middleburg for many years, aren't happy
about the growth. Gerlach said many of her
neighbors complain the area is turning away
from its rural, easy-going atmosphere to one
with too much traffic and overrun by people.


acres it will cover more area than Oakleaf
Plantation in northwestern Clay County and
have a comparable number of homes as
well as retail and commercial spin-offs.
"I'm not anticipating Middleburg Heights
in no time soon," Sackett said. "With Black


Creek coming in that could change 15 years
from now. Downtown could be six miles
down the road from where everyone agrees
now at 218 and Blanding. It's going to be an
interesting ride. There's no doubt about it,
the area is picking up."

New Clay County residential developments like this one near new Lake Asbury Junior High in the Middleburg area are fueling remarkable re-
tail growth, especially along Blanding Boulevard.

But Gerlach, a Green Bay, Wisc., native
who moved there a few years go, said she
doesn't see it that way.
"I'm happy we're getting a Home Depot.
That way my husband doesn't have to drive
so far when he goes there," she said.
Retail businesses aren't the only thing
coming here. Several existing churches are
growing and others are actively looking to
open their doors.
Pastor Eric Jaffe of Celebration Church in
Orange Park said he would love to find a
site, although churches are sparing with de-
velopers for the same property in the high
growth areas like Middleburg.
But Jaffe said he remains hopeful.
"God seems to provide for churches when
it comes to those sorts of things," he said.
While the business focus is currently north
of the intersection of County Road 218 and
Blanding Boulevard - considered the epicen-
ter of unincorporated Middleburg - Sackett
believes that may change in a few years.
A residential development called Black
Creek is coming in at the corner of State
Route 16 and Blanding Boulevard. At 8,000-

Stone Plus believes Middleburg site will blossom


By Greg Walsh, Managin Editor
gwalsh@jcpgroup.com

MIDDLEBURG - Bob Supina was searching
for a third location for his stone company all
over Northeast Florida when he came to
Clay County.
He considered Jacksonville's Westside
and a spot near Green Cove Springs, but
Supina said he wanted a spot where cus-
tomers would be most responsive to his
company's paving stones, gravel, mulch and
"anything for the outside that doesn't grow."
He and his partner finally settled on the
west side of Blanding Boulevard just north
of Branan Field Road. A June opening is an-
ticipated, he said.
"I think it's going to be great," said
Supina, a Flagler County native who opened
Jacksonville's first Stone Plus location in
1997. "We'd been looking at this area for
three or four years."
It's clear Orange Park is growing south-
ward and that the Middleburg area is the
next big expansion area, he said. The area
that's particularly of interest, he said, is
Branan Field Road and Oakleaf Plantation.

Construction of a new Stone Plus store is under way on Blanding Boulevard just north of the site
where a new Home Depot and Wal-Mart Supercenter are being built.


"We just drove around and got a good
feel for the area. We spent several months
looking on Blanding before deciding on it.
"That part of Blanding just seemed to
have everything we need," he said.
A key ingredient to selecting the site -
bordered by a liquor store to the south and
a church on the north - was adequate ac-
cess, Supina said. Although the Blanding
Boulevard traffic count in front of the build-
ing is in the thousands per day, Supina said
he doesn't expect a lot of impulse buyers.
The 2,500-square-foot building, with a
steep tinned roof and large front porch, will
be a throwback.


we were the first ones to go through it (after
the Master Plan) was approved by the state,"
Supina said. "It relies a lot on landscaping.
They are requiring a particular look.
"We thought it was worth it, but it did
cost more."
The building, paving and site preparation
will cost more than $2 million.
The remainder of the property will be
paved, with various products stacked on top
the pavement. "It's a clean environment to
go shopping," he said.
Supina said customers wouldn't have to
worry about driving into a muddy area to re-
trieve gravel or mulch on the two-acre site.


We've got a big commitment over there.
We just feel like that's the spot people are
going to drive to for our product.

--Bob Supina


"It's a Florida cracker-style building," he
said. "It's an old down home Florida look, the
way they looked back in the 20's and 30's."
The site falls within the Branan Field
Master Plan, which requires builders to meet
strict requirements on building styles and
landscaping. Supina said the plan's require-
ments did mean additional costs.
"It was extremely extensive, and I believe


Stone Plus, which will employ 11 people,
will offer customer pickup and delivery to
both wholesale and retail accounts.
"We've got a big commitment over
there," said Supina, adding he chose
the location more on "gut feeling" than
on statistics. "We just feel like that's
the spot people are going to drive to
for our products."

FLEMING ISLAND from 9


Florida Mortage, Florida Conservatory of
Music, Domenic's Ice Cream Cafe (formerly
Scoopy Doo's) and Elisabeth, A Nail Spa.
Already in 2006 Box Seats Restaurant,
Piece-a-Cake Caf6, pediatric dentist Dr. Beth
Kailesa and Ideal Image have opened in Vil-
lage Square.
The L.J. Development Group, Inc. plans to
sell the Village Square property, likely clos-
ing later this month. However, they will de-
velop the three remaining pads, starting this
year with a planned completion in 2007.
After the upcoming sale they plan to
maintain a presence on site through building
completion, but the new owners will assume
local management responsibility.
Tammy Campbell, Executive Assistant
Property Manager for L.J. Development
Group, Inc., said the completed buildings are
almost at capacity. Of the three spaces cur-
rently available, Campbell said two are like-
ly rented.
Future tenants this year may include a
dance studio, doctor's office or rehabilitation
center.
"It's amazing what's here," said Campbell,
who remembers crossing the Doctors Lake
Bridge in the 1980's. "There were all these
banana trees but it was all undeveloped past
the bridge."
Many of Fleming Island's new business
owners chose the area for its growth but also
because they live here. Erin Jones, co-owner
of Hair Company of Fleming Island, opened
January 13 in the plaza west of Home Depot.
"I've worked here for years. It's a great
area," said Jopes.
Aquariam store Fish Tails owner Daniel
Mills says he chose the island because he en-
joys the growing area.
"I always wanted to work for myself, to
live the American dream," said Mills, a Flem-
ing Island resident.
The recent explosion in people moving to
Fleming Island supports the business growth.
According to the Zeisel-Knapp Group,
their real estate agents made 220 sales in
2005. Overall, 1061 properties were sold in
the Fleming Island area last year.
Centex Homes experienced a busy year in
2005 and expects as much in 2006. In 2005
they opened Cypress Glen in Fleming Island
Plantation.

Applebees hopes to serve Fleming Island customers in 2006. The restaurant is being built in
front of RPM Automotive on East West Parkway.


"We had 11 sales off the models Labor
Day weekend," said Carl Holman, Opera-
tional Marketing Manager for Centex. They
have since sold almost all of their 88 lots in
Cypress Glen. "Fleming Island has been real-
ly great for us. We know the area, the school
system is good - it's a very desirable area,
and definitely an area a lot of builders are in-
terested in."
Centex recently started sales for Amber-
wood, their second paired villas develop-
ment in the Plantation. Ground breaking for
58 units is expected soon.
Margaret Alfano, Administrative/Recre-


ation Assistant for Fleming Island Plantation,
herself a resident for 3 V2 years, rarely leaves
the island.
"If I can't get it on the Island, I go online,"
she said. "If it's on Wells Road, it might as
well be Ohio."
Alfano said many residents have expressed
an interest in more restaurants coming to the
island, like a Taco Bell or an Olive Garden.
"And a Bookstore, Barnes and Noble or
Borders, I hear that all the time," she said.
The way Fleming Island is growing, it
may just be a matter of time before they get
their wish.

Use of Argyle Forest Boulevard is an ex-

regional impacts.
Residents from development on both sides
of the county line use Argyle Forest Boulevard
as well as Branan Field / Chaffee Road.

OAKLEAF from 14


by this fall.
Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton and the
Jacksonville Council recently approved a
change to the Better Jacksonville Plan to per-
mit improvements proposed for streets inter-
secting Argyle Forest Boulevard such as
Schindler Drive and Rampart Avenue to
move faster, and be more fully funded.
Jacksonville is moving ahead with anoth-
er access to I-10, moving the design of the ex-
tension of Branan Field/Chaffee Road from
103rd to I-10 to be completed this year along
with right of way acquisition. The road will
move from 103rd street west to New World
Avenue (at Cecil Field) and the interstate to-
wards the new interchange proposed at I-10.
The improvements on the Duval County
side of Argyle Forest Boulevard and Branan
Field Chaffee Roads will not be matched in
the near future by Clay County.
Clay does not plan to improve Branan
Field Chaffee Road until 2008/09 according


to its recently approved Annual Capacity
statement, adopted by the Board of County
Commissioners in January.
The road will become part of the limited
access four laned outer beltway under con-
sideration by the county. The current road
will become a one-way frontage road with
two additional lanes built to the east for the
other direction of traffic.
The long awaited College Drive extension
is in the hands of the Federal Highway Ad-
ministration (FHWA) for review, according to
Clay County Engineer Chuck Iley.
While road conditions will not improve on
the Clay County side of the county line, there
will be other improvements underway.
The Clay County School District expects
the new Oakleaf K-8 School to open Aug. 8.
Superintendent David Owens told the
school board the school may not be complete
when it opens due to the fast track construc-
tion process being used..
The school, now scheduled to cost $16.1
million, would normally take 18-24 months.

The Oakleaf fire station currently under construction will replace the fire station in Cheswick
Oaks. No date has been set for the opening. A flawed bid process last year; which required
re-bidding the project, has set the project behind nearly a year.

Eagle Landing, the 18-hole golf course in Oakleaf Plantation, quietly opened in late January.
Its pro shop is currently located in a temporary structure until the permanent clubhouse is
completed nearby.


However, due to the fast pace of develop-
ment in the area, the school board chose to
hire a construction manager-at-risk that al-
lows for design-build construction methods
to be used.
That process also means the construction
manager negotiates all contracts with con-
tractors rather than bidding out the project.
In theory, the opening of the neighbor-
hood school could be expected to reduce traf-
fic, as children will live close enough to walk.
However, as the situation with the opening of
Argyle Elementary has shown, it actually may
mean more traffic as parents drive their stu-
dents to school.
The school is located close to the inter-
section of Branan Field/ Chaffee Road and
Plantation Oaks Boulevard. More left turning
motions onto the parkway with no dedicated


turn lane will mean increased traffic slow
downs on that road, and potentially more
traffic accidents as well.
Residents of Oakleaf will see the con-
struction of the new fire station in Oak Leaf
with a corresponding closure of the fire sta-
tion off Cheswick Oaks as equipment and
personnel move to staff the Argyle station.
The station at Cheswick Oaks is currently
a little more than a mile from Argyle Ele-
mentary on Cheswick Oaks.
Small retail ventures have continued to lo-
cate in the area and ground has been broken
on property interior to Oakleaf that will con-
tain yet another small shopping center.
Watch this year, however, for announce-
ments of development for the comer of Ar-
gyle Forest Boulevard and Branan Field
Chafee Roads.


Thinking About College ?












At St. Johns we believe the time to begin thinking about a
successful school career is when your child is entering
school... not when he is about to graduate.
Investigate your opportunities at St. Johns Country Day
School, and find out why St. Johns produces students like
those in our 2005 graduating class. Thirty-six of the forty-six
seniors earned Florida Bright Futures Scholarships; five were
National Merit Scholars. One was a National Achievement
Scholar. The combined total of academic scholarships offered
was more than $2.2 million. Every member of the class was
accepted to college, as has every St. Johns graduate since our
first graduating class in 1956. For more information call

History of a hospital
Thirty-five years ago, Orange Park Medical Center opened to serve the
needs of our then small community. In 1974 Clay County welcomed a new
hospital with the founding mission to provide accessible and affordable
healthcare to residents throughout the growing county. The location was
selected as a center point in what was at that time the high growth area of
the county. Throughout its history, Orange Park Medical Center has grown
to keep pace with the community served and is now a 230 bed full service
hospital that has done that and more.
How It All Started
The story of how the hospital became a reality is one filled with dedication
to purpose by physicians and community leaders. Nearly a decade of effort
went into researching, planning, seeking financial support and building the
hospital, which was opened as Greater Orange Park Community Hospital.
Starting back in 1965 a rather loosely organized citizens committee started
their work towards providing Clay County with a new hospital. This attempt
was halted when the committee was candidly advised that Hill-Burton fed-
eral funds would not be available to them any time soon. In 1968, several
leading Clay County citizens again formed - this time a non-profit corpora-
tion. Again this group was advised that no Hill-Burton funds were available
except for expansion of existing facilities. Then in 1971 another proposal
for a Clay County Hospital, this time by a Seventh Day Adventist Church.
However church policy required that approval had to be granted by the Area
Health Planning Council. The Jacksonville Health Planning Council dis-
couraged the proposal stating, "additional beds were not needed".
However later in 1972 the Orange Park Committee had an independent
market survey done, which revealed that a 150-bed hospital was needed to
serve Orange Park and two postal zones in nearby West Jacksonville. At
that time the group's biggest hurdle was financing such an undertaking.
The volunteer citizens' committee then converted from a non-profit to a
profit corporation comprised entirely of physicians. It was then that con-
tact was made with a leading taxpaying hospital corporation and the local
group of physicians started serious negotiations with Humana
Corporation in Louisville, Kentucky.
A dream becomes reality...
Humana furnished the know-how and the funds needed to build a 196 bed
hospital and on November 18, 1974 the first patient was admitted to Greater
Orange Park Community Hospital. It wasn't until 1984, however, that the


local hospital took on the Humana name - on its 10th anniversary and fol-
lowing its first major expansion, the hospital was renamed Humana Hospital
- Orange Park. As the years marched on, so has the hospital in meeting com-
munity needs, providing technological advances and services. In the early
90's the hospital opened a 24 bed psychiatric unit, added neonatal intensive
care services, expanded its Emergency Department for the 3rd time and
changed its name to Orange Park Medical Center. As the 90's drew to a
dose, the hospital once again entered into a massive construction project
which created a new Women's Center, enlarged and enhanced outpatient
services Emergency services and provided a whole new look to the exterior
of the hospital. Into the new millennium, the hospital embarked on yet
another expansion, which added two new private rooms, towers and again,
enhanced it exterior appearance. But the growth didn't stop there. Another
expansion which will provide a total rebuild of surgical services and addition-
al private room towers on the north side of the hospital commenced in late
2005 with anticipated completion sometime early to mid 2007.
Into the future...
The hospital leadership has always made the commitment to be respon-
sive to the demands and expansive growth of the community it serves.
Growth aside, in the 30 plus years of the hospital's existence, it has
remained consistent with its mission: "Above all else, we are committed
to the care and improvement of human life. In recognition of this com-
mitment, we strive to deliver high quality cost effective healthcare in the
communities we serve." Recently, awarded a Certificate of Need by the
state to build a new hospital in Green Cove Springs, Orange Park Medical
Center confirms its commitment to the care and improvement of human
life. The new 100 bed state-of-the-art facility in Green Cove Springs will
enhance access to healthcare for many residents of our growing county.
The plans are for the new hospital, South Clay Medical Center, to offer
acute care and specialty services and assure that residents of our growing
county can receive all of their healthcare needs close to home.
Not surprisingly, appeals by other hospital systems in Jacksonville threat-
en to delay the progress but you can help. You can send a letter sup-
